Stereoscopic depth sensing means capture the world as a human perceives, allowing understanding and positioning in the surrounding scene. This meeting will gather 3D sensor technologies such as LIDAR, ToF cameras, structured/coded light challenging the manufacturers with the end-user requirements for current and future applications.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you”creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships
