Even if the technology needed for FMCW is still costly, the possibility of integrating FMCW on a single chip is very attractive for the automotive industry as automotive LIDAR is subject to strong price pressure. At this meeting, the last developments for FMCW LIDAR will be presented, and the potential collaborations within the supply chain to accelerate the adoption of this technology will be discussed.

Technology Explainer

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.
