Quebec City, QC -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/07/2015 -- Premises that require a high level of security often have a physical fence, but this is not always enough. LeddarTech has a customer with a high-security establishment who was looking for a reliable detection system that would alert security personnel to the presence of potential intruders. The organization was particularly interested in a sturdy and weather-proof system that would offer 24/7 detection, regardless of the weather conditions or the time of day; it had to work just as well on bright sunny days as on cold stormy nights. The customer was on a tight schedule, so the system had to be quickly and easily installed and simple to operate.
The Leddar™ Sensor uses a novel, inherently eye-safe technology that performs detection and ranging by time-of-flight measurement using infrared light pulses. For this type of application, a series of Leddar sensors are installed on posts all around the perimeter, creating a highly efficient optical detection barrier detecting any unwanted presence. The detection status of each sensor is sent to the security control center and is used to alert security personnel and provide the exact location of a potential intruder. Moreover, the high reliability of the Leddar technology installation produces very few false-alarms, further adding to the efficacy of the LeddarTech solution.
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.
