Leddar Technology for Arduino Projects

QUEBEC CITY, CANADA, March 31, 2014 LeddarTech, owner of the patented Leddar LED-based detection technology, is pleased to announce that its leading-edge sensors are now readily available to the Arduino community.

In honour of Arduinos tenth 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, mentioned Sonia Blanger, 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, adds Ms. Blanger.
