Adaptive LiDAR: Key to Advancing Autonomy

AEye (United States)

From today’s iphone to tomorrow’s rockets and the cars in-between, LiDAR will be everywhere. But when it comes to safety applications, there is a high bar for adoption. The toughest corner cases - situations where an autonomous vehicle has difficulty addressing or identifying an object or circumstance (think: A black tire on the road, when raining, on a dark night) - must be solved to advance to higher levels of autonomy. The only way to address these cases is through an adaptive LiDAR, one that brings intelligence into data collection, and enables the LiDAR to be as dynamic as the environment it’s assessing.

Meta-Lidar: The Sensor Technology That Makes AR/VR Experiences Real

Gleb Akselrod
Gleb Akselrod
CTO and Founder
Lumotive (United States)

Virtual and augmented reality gadgets need to map surrounding, locate objects and track gestures to create surreal and engaging experiences. And, to be ubiquitous, they need to do so over larger spaces in bright outdoor conditions using as few as possible tiny, low-cost and low-power sensors. Join this talk to see how Lumotive’s Meta-Lidar technology makes it possible with a single sensor — making AR/R experiences real.
