With nothing more than
a photonic chip and an ordinary camera, EPFL researchers have managed to count
biomolecules one by one in a small sample and determine their position. Their
tiny device – a marriage of optics and smart image analysis – is even able to
detect a graphene sheet only a single atom thick. This type of sensor could one
day play a key role in personalized medicine.
The companies and their products include:• Ouster – a US company making LiDAR sensors for robotics, drones, surveying, automation and autonomous vehicles• NavTech Radar – a UK company making advanced Radar sensors for autonomous vehicles, perimeter security and transport monitoring• Telemecanique – a French-owned company making Ultrasonic sensors used in automation, autonomous vehicles, manufacturing and robotics• Applus Idiada – a Spanish company that has developed its first external-facing product in the UK, a dedicated Processing platform for industrial automation, autonomous vehicles and sensor development• Quantum – a US company with specialist Data storage solutions for autonomous vehicles and mobile robotics
Velodyne has shipped a cumulative total of 30,000 LiDAR sensors with a
total value of half a billion dollars. This achievement underscores
Velodyne’s LiDAR market leadership and ability to deliver a broad
portfolio of lidar sensor products at mass production levels.
RoboSense, a provider of LiDAR perception technology solutions, has announced
that it has provided cold-resistant all-weather LiDAR for the world’s
first autonomous driving shuttle bus for all weather conditions, Gacha.
