LiDAR Tech Fortifies Security Applications

Quanergy Systems, manufacturer of LiDAR sensors and smart 3D sensing solutions, has developed what it calls a first-of-its-kind LiDAR-driven security solution that provides a cost-effective and technology-based way to monitor and defend open and unprotected perimeters at national borders, airports, railroads, subways, power lines, power plants, and natural resource sites. The system utilizes LiDAR technology by Quanergy in concert with multiple security experts and the Border Commerce and Security Council. Primarily known as the technology that gives “sight” to autonomous vehicles, LiDAR operates by reflecting laser pulses off objects to measure distance, size and shape, and enables machines to sense, perceive, analyze and react to surroundings.

 

The solution consists of Quanergy’s intelligent security monitoring system, powered by the M8 LiDAR sensor and QORTEX artificial intelligence perception software. Multiple LiDARs create a virtual 3D point cloud to detect, classify, and track physical security breaches in any environment, day or night, and instantly alert authorities and direct them to a specific location. The system allows for monitoring to take place 24/7 and can be powered by solar panels with battery packs or grid power.

SENSORS EXPO & CONFERENCE

Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.

 

Currently, Quanergy has a small-scale version of this solution on private riverfront property on the U.S./Mexico border in Del Rio, Texas, serving as a real-world example of an integrated intelligent system for border security. Current solutions, including ground sensors, cameras and physical structures, are all limited in their effectiveness, which is why this application was selected as a relevant test case.
