Cepton (NASDAQ: CPTN), a Silicon Valley innovator of high-performance lidar solutions, has announced the unveiling of its new flagship automotive lidar, Ultra. The world’s slimmest adaptive, long-range lidar, Ultra is designed based on real OEM requirements for next-generation consumer vehicle ADAS and automated driving capabilities. It boasts Cepton’s latest innovation – MagnoSteer(TM) – enabling an unmatched combination of performance, power efficiency and compactness. “Powered by MagnoSteer, Ultra breaks the performance bottleneck of 905 nm lidars while taking advantage of a mature, mass-market-ready laser technology. With a 300 m detection range at 10% reflectivity, it can detect and locate a dark object, such as a black car, at a distance 50% further than what is typically required for automotive collision prevention systems to properly react,” said Brunno Moretti, SVP of product and commercial operations at Cepton. “All of this is achieved without the need for fiber laser components, which are associated with high costs, low maturity, poor reliability and excessive power consumption for automotive applications. Ultra presents the ultimate solution that the automotive industry needs today: top-notch performance coupled with superior scalability.”
