Cepton Technologies (NASDAQ: CPTN), a Silicon Valley innovator and leader in high-performance lidar solutions, was recognized for its Nova Lidar sensor in the third annual AutoTech Breakthrough Awards program. A miniature, near-range lidar sensor designed to enhance vehicle safety and enable autonomous driving capabilities, Nova Lidar was named Automotive Sensor Hardware Solution of the year by AutoTech Breakthrough.
