Quanergy Develops Lidar for Self-Driving Cars

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 18, 2015 — Quanergy Systems Inc. plans to release the first solid-state lidar sensor for self-driving cars in 2016.

The sensor contains an integrated circuit that scans in every direction without any moving parts on both the macro- and microscale, creating a live 3D view around a vehicle, and detecting, classifying, and tracking objects in the scene.

The company expects the device to cost less than $1,000, and has established partnerships with automotive companies including Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai-Kia and Renault-Nissan.

Quanergy's artificial intelligence-powered, lidar-based sensing system is already used in more than 30 markets, including transportation, mapping, industrial automation and security.
