LeddarTech detection technology available for use with Arduino technology

LeddarTech's LED-based detection technology can now be incorporated into detection and ranging projects utilizing the Arduino platform.

LeddarTech, owner of the patented Leddar LED-based detection technology, announces that its leading-edge sensors are now readily available to the Arduino community.

In honor of Arduino’s 10th anniversary, and as a proud supporter of all innovation, LeddarTech is enabling Arduino users to easily and cost-effectively integrate detection and ranging capabilities into their unique projects.
The Leddar detection and ranging module can be utilized in conjunction with the Arduino platform and other shields to effortlessly add on capabilities such as object/people detection, distance measurement, object/people-counting and many more. As the module is available in different forms, it is highly configurable and can be adapted to countless applications.

In addition to full-fledged detection and ranging capabilities, the Leddar module comes with a software development kit (with .NET and C libraries, LabVIEW and MATLAB examples, and sample RS-485 code for Windows and Linux), a downloadable Arduino library, Arduino-specific video demonstrations on YouTube, as well as ongoing support from LeddarTech experts.

“The detection applications described above are just a few examples of how the Leddar module could be used in Arduino projects. There are in fact a wide variety of possibilities,” mentions Sonia Bélanger, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at LeddarTech. “We encourage Arduino developers to experiment with our technology, to see how they can benefit from its easy-to-integrate value-added features.”
