Quebec City, QC -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/05/2015 -- Industrial applications can be particularly challenging for some sensing technologies, which may be significantly affected by the harsh environment. Specially designed for the industrial market, the LeddarTech IS16 is a robust, smart sensor that delivers consistent performance and reliability in the harshest conditions.
The IS16 Multi-Element Industrial Sensor has no moving parts and is encased in a weather-resistant enclosure. Its measurements remain unaffected by vibrations, dust, lighting conditions, or temperature variations. It is also perfectly suited to outdoor applications.
At the heart of the IS16 Industrial Leddar Sensor lies the patented Leddar technology, designed to detect, locate, and measure all types of objects, solid, or liquid. The IS16 provides both distance and angular positioning while performing continuous analysis of the area with 16 independent active segments.
LeddarTech is the owner and provider of the patented, leading-edge Leddar sensing technology which enables advanced detection and ranging systems. Leddar performs time-of-flight measurements using light pulses processed through innovative algorithms, detecting a wide range of objects under various environmental conditions.
Leddar sensing technology is globally deployed in all types of devices and applications, from specialized industrial solutions to high volume Internet of Things (IoT) sensing applications. Already growing at 200% CAGR over the last few years, the sensor market is expected to reach more than a trillion dollars in 2020.
The highly adaptable Leddar technology serves multiple industry sectors in different formats (from sensor ICs to off-the-shelf sensor modules), providing brand owners and OEMs with a best-of-class sensing solution optimized for their application and ensuring quick and simple integration.
LeddarTech's technology is accessible to all interested in exploring the new frontiers of innovation through sensors, from maker communities experimenting with sensor modules to specialized industrial leaders and large consumer goods manufacturers working on new products or applications.
