In its third product launch since December, LeddarTech has introduced its the LeddarVision Surround software (LVS-2+). Targeting premium vehicles, this product is a comprehensive fusion and perception software stack to support surround-view L2/L2+ ADAS highway assistance and 5-star NCAP 2025/GSR 2022 safety applications.

LVS-2+ is the latest low-level sensor fusion and perception product built for the company’s LeddarVision software family. The LVS-2+ expands the company’s product offering of the LeddarVision Front-Entry LVF-E and Front-High LVF-H. These products target entry- to premium-level ADAS applications.

The LVS-2+ extends the LVF front-view product family from a one-camera plus two to five-radar (1V2R-1V5R) sensor configuration to a five-camera plus five-radar (5V5R) configuration. This enhanced configuration supports ADAS functions such as traffic jam and highway assist applications, enabling automated lane changes, overtaking and extended speed range adaptive cruise control.

According to LeddarVision, the new low-level fusion (LLF) technology pushes the performance envelope, extending the effective range of the sensors. Low-level fusion combines camera and radar modalities, achieving a high-performance system with reduced requirements per modality at a lower total sensing cost. It is said to offer superior accuracy in object separation and longitudinal position measurement on highways enables higher-performing adaptive cruise control implementation.

The software supports L2/L2+ highway assist, including adaptive cruise control up to 160 km/h, lane centering control, active lane change assist, traffic jam assist and highway assist (including auto-lane change support).

LVS-2+ addresses 5-star NCAP 2025/GSR 2022 safety applications. It includes a built-in redundancy feature to accommodate sensor failures, degradations and conflicts. In addition, it supports global scene attributes detection for operational design domain (ODD) analysis, sensor coverage and health monitoring features.

“LeddarTech is committed to supporting automotive Tier 1-2 suppliers and OEMs with software solutions and products that support enhanced safety features and lower overall development costs,” stated the company’s CEO, Charles Boulanger. “In December, we released our LVF products for entry-level to premium ADAS safety and highway assistance L2/L2+ applications, and in keeping with our commitment to continual product development, our newest product LeddarVision Surround (LVS-2+) further increases our software offering to our customers, with products that solve more safety issues with a scalable low-level fusion and perception software stack that offers higher performance at a lower cost,” Mr. Boulanger concluded.
