Quanergy Systems, Inc., a leading provider of OPA-based solid-state LiDAR sensors and smart 3D solutions for automotive and IoT, today announced the successful demonstration of its S3 Series LiDAR, a true solid-state LiDAR sensor using an industry-first Optical Phased Array (OPA) technology and a scalable CMOS silicon manufacturing process for cost-effective, mass-market production. The demonstration was conducted in partnership with Santa Clara University’s School of Engineering, Robotics Department.
This demonstration was conducted with an S3-4, a solid-state LiDAR test platform with four scanning beams. The test included the tracking and identification of several difficult-to-detect objects. These included a target with 10% reflectivity mounted on a driving vehicle, a black SUV, and a person with dark clothes. All these objects, initially located 100 meters from the test platform, were successfully tracked by the S3-4 test sensor as they moved to 130 meters.
