May Mobility to use Cepton LiDAR for Autonomous fleet

Michigan-based May Mobility vehicle fleet to integrate advanced LiDAR products from fast-growing Silicon Valley-based LiDAR manufacturer

Info

Cepton Technologies, a Silicon Valley-based provider of 3D LiDAR solutions for automotive, industrial and mapping applications, has announced a partnership with May Mobility, the first developer of autonomous driving technology to replace an existing transportation solution with self-driving fleet vehicles on public roads.

Cepton’s core technology consists of a proprietary laser emission and sensing array. Using a distributed system design, Cepton says it achieves a significant cost reduction compared to the currently available LiDAR systems.

May Mobility focuses on fleets of self-driving vehicles for short distance travel, and will integrate Cepton LiDAR products into these microtransit fleets. A successful pilot was completed in 2017, with the May Mobility fleet transporting riders on public roads in downtown Detroit.

“We left big auto so we could have more control of when our technology would hit the road, and a partner like Cepton, who has clearly communicated expectations and demonstrated outstanding follow-through, is essential in helping us get cars on the road first," said Edwin Olson, May Mobility CEO and co-founder. “Cepton is driving the high performance LiDAR evolution to break the $1,000 price point; we are very excited about our collaboration and what it will mean for the future of the industry."
