A new generation of sensors
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is helping develop a platform to fuse data and drive new services. The work is taking place under the BigClouT joint research project, which was set up to come up with integrated solutions for smart cities.
GRENOBLE, France – Dec. 12, 2016 – SIGMA FUSION, Leti’s innovative low-cost solution for autonomous
cars, transforms the myriad of incoming distance data into clear information about the driving environment.
This efficient perception system, which Leti will demonstrate at CES 2017, combines, merges and feeds
exhaustive data to an autonomous car's autopilot, providing all it needs to guarantee safe driving. It is able
to detect any kind of obstacle and to assess obstacle-free spaces for safe route navigation.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
