DETROIT - Paula Jones, president of Ibeo Automotive USA – a subsidiary of the Hamburg, Germany-based LiDAR sensor specialist that was first in mass production, Ibeo Automotive Systems GmbH – will discuss the challenges of developing next-generation LiDAR at the SAE Innovations in Mobility conference running Oct. 29 – 31 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Mich.
Her presentation, slated for 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 30, is titled "Solid State LiDAR Technology: A Response to Current Challenges in Autonomous Driving."
Jones will discuss some of the critical issues facing sensing for autonomous driving and how Ibeo is addressing them with the development of its next-generation solid state LiDAR, ibeoNEXT 4D Solid State LiDAR.
Ibeo's solid state approach to LiDAR has no moving parts, is compact and lightweight for easy packaging, and is modular to fit a wide range of applications from ADAS to autonomous. Ibeo expects the ibeoNEXT 4D Solid State LiDAR to offer significant improvements in object detection and recognition over current LiDARs.
