Cepton Lidar to Feature in Highway Tolling Systems

Facebook X LinkedIn Email
Cepton has won a multimillion-dollar sales contract from one of the largest highway tolling system operators in the U.S., the lidar technology company said. Under the terms of the contract, Cepton’s Sora series lidar sensors will be deployed in the U.S. by the customer on several major tollways located in the tri-state area and Northern California.

Compared with ground loops that have been traditionally used to identify vehicle types, gantry-based systems powered by lidar intelligence are much more accurate due to their 3D precision and real-time vehicle classification capabilities, Cepton said in announcing the contract. In addition, lidar enables smart analytics to ensure tollways are operating efficiently and error-free. Lidar-enabled gantry-based systems have also become a preferred solution by tolling authorities in recent years because they can be installed and maintained without disrupting lane usage, according to Cepton.

Glossary
lidar
Lidar, short for light detection and ranging, is a remote sensing technology that uses laser light to measure distances and generate precise, three-dimensional information about the shape and characteristics of objects and surfaces. Lidar systems typically consist of a laser scanner, a GPS receiver, and an inertial measurement unit (IMU), all integrated into a single system. Here is how lidar works: Laser emission: A laser emits laser pulses, often in the form of rapid and repetitive laser...
