LiDAR (Light Detecting and Ranging) technology is most widely known for its use in autonomous vehicles. The technology essentially work by sending out light pulses that reflect off physical objects, with the time it takes for those pulses to return being used to develop accurate 3D spatial renderings that can be leveraged in many use cases. With a very high pulse rate, LiDAR systems can create not only 3D images, but can develop accurate representations of location, movement and directionality of people and objects.
LiDAR solutions, such as the ones Quanergy has been developing since 2012 are already being used in applications across several markets, including smart cities, physical security, mapping, industrial automation, and transportation.
Now, as governments across the world start to roll back some of the COVID-19 restrictions that have been in place for three months, the same technology can be used to monitor and track occupancy, movement, and body temperature in buildings, public spaces, and other areas, to help ensure compliance with ongoing safety protocols.
Today, Quanergy has announced a partnership with RF and microwave component distributor Milexia, as it Quanergy builds out its global presence and introduces its AI-driven LiDAR applications to new business and markets where the solutions can help solve real operational challenges.
This is the first LiDAR partnership for Milexia, which will be offering Quanergy’s technology to its customers in across several industries and applications, including industrial automation, mapping, and autonomous vehicles. Milexia will include Quanergy’s LiDAR portfolio within two of its solution lines:
- The Components & Systems Division – A complete catalog of components and sub-systems for radio frequency and microwave applications, and
- The Power & Electro-Mechanics Division – Offering power supplies, electromechanical solutions, sensors, man-to-machine interface products for various markets with special focus on industrial, medical, defense and aerospace.
By providing actionable insights to organizations across major industries, Quanergy is enabling its partners and their customers to optimize their operations.
Miami International Airport, for instance, is using Quanergy’s Flow Management platform to support better security checkpoint management, and coupled with social distancing software, to effectively enforce safety protocols within the facility.
