CES 2016

Post by dhirota » Mon Jan 11, 2016 1:01 am

There are too many booths and categories to see, and talk with everyone at CES 2016. Since I only had two days there I focused on 3D printing, VR and AR, and lidar.

Since I mentioned the solid state lidar that I saw with the Mercedes Benz, I thought that I should at least mention the contact information so anyone with extra time can check it out.

Quanergy (http://www.quanergy.com) has a TOF lidar, with a range of 450 feet, class 1, at 400Kpps, for US$6,500 and weighs 900 grams.

I assume that is their M8-1? Or are those specs fo the solid state, S3??

1m pps for $250?

[Edit]

I see the IEEE article had more, including the Merc.

+/- 5cm @ 100m is probably ok for cars, wouldn't mind something a bit tighter! Would be certainly interesting for short range stuff, multiple sensors simultaneously, walking through a building for example. My hard drive just ran out of the building ..

Sorry for the confusion. The specs are for the M8-1

range accuracy, (1 sigma at 50m) less than 3cm
angular resolution, 0.03-0.2 degrees, dependent on frame rate
sensors, 8 sensor/detector pairs
FOV, 360 deg horiz, 20 deg vert (+3 deg/-17 deg)
nominal power, 18W
voltage, 24VDC
dimensions, 102mm diamX 86mm height
output, 1 Gbps ethernet
Data output, angle, distance, intensity
return, 1 return @ 400Kpps

It seems that they are looking at the security market place or other niche mapping applications that do not require high survey grade precision.

The line at CES 2016 for Oculus Rift was too long to waste the time.

But this was interesting
