Cepton and ThinkReps Partner on Physical Security, Smart Cities and IIoT

By Ken Briodagh August 16, 2019

Cepton Technologies, a provider of 3D lidar solutions for automotive, transport infrastructure, IoT, security, mapping and industrial applications, recently announced a partnership with ThinkReps, a physical security manufacturers' representative. As part of this strategic collaboration, Cepton’s sales and marketing efforts reportedly will be supported by ThinkReps’ local tri-state area team to drive sales of Cepton’s Smart Lidar solutions. Through the partnership with Cepton, ThinkReps’ security partners will have the opportunity to integrate Cepton’s advanced lidar technology into a wide variety of security solutions, the release indicated.

Cepton’s Micro Motion Technology (MMTTM) platform is designed to enable advanced 3D perception in a rugged design. The company’s patented MMT technology can eliminate frictional elements of its mechanical motion so the sensors last longer and are more reliable. Physical security companies can easily integrate Cepton’s sensors into physical sensing security systems to increase accuracy of detection, tracking and classification of objects. Due to its high resolution, high tolerance to electromagnetic interference and adaptivity to various environments, lidar can complement other sensing technologies to offer optimized security solutions for parameter monitoring, access control, footfall tracking, behavior surveillance and so forth.

“We are excited to leverage ThinkReps’ 40 years of expertise to bring Cepton’s unique lidar solutions to the Northeastern region of the U.S.,” said William Muller, Director of Business Development, Cepton. “Our partnership will continue our goal to revolutionize the security industry through a wealth of advanced lidar applications, fostering safer and more connected smart cities.”

“This partnership aligns with our mission to help technology companies with cutting-edge and innovative products grow their business and achieve their sales goals,” said Adam Messina, President, ThinkReps. “Cepton is at the forefront of lidar technology so we look forward to sharing its solutions with our partners in the security space.”
