Cepton, Clearpath Robotics Partner for 3D LiDAR

Cepton Technologies, Inc., a provider of 3D sensing solutions for automotive, industrial and mapping applications, announced that it has partnered with Clearpath Robotics, a global provider of mobile robots for research and development. The partnership extends the availability of Cepton’s HR80 Series LiDAR sensors to Clearpath Robotics’ online store. Availability on the Clearpath online store provides professionals and researchers a means to augment their unmanned robotic vehicle purchases with 3D sensing capabilities. High-volume orders are available directly through Cepton.

Cepton’s HR80W and HR80T sensors are bringing 3D perception to Clearpath autonomous vehicles and robots, a partnership that will be demonstrated live at IROS 2017. The benefits of Cepton’s LiDAR offerings set them apart — micro-motion technology removes expensive, ungainly spinning parts common in traditional LiDAR units, resulting in smaller and more reliable sensors that do not compromise on resolution or range. Use of off-the-shelf materials reduces delivery wait time and overall cost. Automation of production makes for easy scaling of manufacturing. The HR80T has a detection range of beyond 200 meters, 80 lines of vertical resolution and better than 0.2-degree angular resolution in both horizontal and vertical directions.


The Clearpath Robotics and Cepton partnership will be on full display at IROS 2017, from September 24-28, 2017 in Vancouver, BC. For live product demos, visit Cepton at booth #227 or Clearpath Robotics at booth #212, in the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre.
