SENSORS MIDWEST

Sensors Midwest Hits Rosemont, IL October 16-17!

Sensors Midwest, the industry's largest event focusing on sensors, design, and IIoT in the Midwest region, is scheduled for October 16-17 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Co-located with STMA, the event draws over 1,000 engineers and engineering professionals that are looking for access to the latest sensor advancements and will provide an opportunity to connect with the area's greatest technology leaders and suppliers.

 

Companies such as Zoox, Shield AI, Zest Finance, Dynamic Yield, Appier, and CognitiveScale joined AEye in being recognized for their innovative technology in front of an audience of 400 senior innovation executives from around the world and news outlets including The Financial Times, CNBC, Reuters, Bloomberg and the Washington Post.

 

AEye is a robotic perception pioneer. The company recently introduced iDAR, a new form of intelligent data collection that enables rapid, dynamic perception and path planning. iDAR combines the world’s first agile MOEMS LiDAR, pre-fused with a low-light camera and embedded artificial intelligence - creating software-definable and extensible hardware that can dynamically adapt to real-time demands. iDAR delivers higher accuracy, longer range, and more intelligent information to optimize path planning software, enabling radically improved autonomous vehicle safety and performance at a reduced cost. In addition to announcing the first solid state, vehicle mounted commercial LiDAR with 360-degree coverage this year, AEye has launched a developer program and will be announcing its suite of automotive products in early January.
