According to market research, within the next five to ten years, the largest segment within the automated vehicle market will be held by autonomous shuttles. Core to their mass adoption are safety considerations, both for passengers as well as for the vulnerable road users in the immediate vicinity of the shuttle. How are these safety requirements achieved? Many of today’s perception platforms are based on sensor fusion, wherein different technologies are paired for optimal results. Most experts agree that LiDAR technology is an integral piece of the solution. As the next generations of autonomous shuttles become more widely adopted, Flash LiDAR solutions, which are already being leveraged today, will become a central part of the sensor suite. Join us to explore the road ahead.
The applications of LIDAR are so broad that seem to be only limited by human imagination. In recent (and not so recent) years we have seen the constant consideration and deployment of LIDARs for distance measurements in agriculture, archaeology, automotive, geology, atmospheric monitoring, law enforcement, military, mining, astronomy,.. But every application has their own by their system integrators, with different degrees of difficulty and maturity. In particular, in the automotive industry, some OEMs envision to place LIDARs in headlights and taillights, bumpers, roof, and other places in the car, at low cost, high durability, low maintenance, high stability, etc. Each of these locations with different required specifications. The goal of this panel is to bring together different TIER1 suppliers and OEMs from different market segments and applications, and discuss the challenges and opportunities for the LIDAR supply chain.
