EPIC Round Table on Lidar Technology for Defence at OPTRO

8 February 2018
Paris, France

 In conjunction with OPTRO

Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) systems are enabling the examination, detection, and mapping of objects easier, faster and with equal or higher resolution than conventional methods. They are one of the main enablers of the upcoming autonomous car industry, and are already in used in defence, security and aviation/aerospace applications.

It is in those applications where the high resolution enabled by LIDAR system makes them particularly good for collecting enough detail to identify targets, such as tanks. LiDAR is proving to be increasingly useful in the autonomy of robots, allowing the computers that control them to produce digital maps of the surrounding area and obstacles. This kind of autonomy is useful in both UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) and specific task autonomous robotics such as bomb disposal units.

The purpose of this round table is to discuss the still unmet needs for 3D sensing in the security, defense and aerospace sectors and well as the strategize for the further adoption of the next generation of miniaturized, lower cost or higher integration LIDAR systems.
