SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Quanergy Systems Inc. has announced the S3 solid-state lidar sensor for autonomous vehicles.

The S3 creates a real-time, long-range 3D view of the environment, recognizing objects while mounted behind a grill, inside a bumper, inside a side-view mirror or behind a rear-view mirror. Through the interaction of the laser, receiver and signal processor, the system generates a half-million data points per second.

The sensor contains no moving parts on a macro or micro scale, resulting in high reliability and long lifetime. More compact than a small point-and-shoot camera, weighing less than 11 ounces and having low power consumption, the S3 can be used in any application that benefits from perceptive vision.

An acronym of light detection and ranging, describing systems that use a light beam in place of conventional microwave beams for atmospheric monitoring, tracking and detection functions. Ladar, an acronym of laser detection and ranging, uses laser light for detection of speed, altitude, direction and range; it is often called laser radar.
