A recent press release states, “Quanergy, the leading provider of solid state LiDAR sensors and smart sensing solutions, today introduced Qortex™, a core, proprietary perception software platform compatible with Quanergy’s full suite of LiDAR sensors. With the release of Qortex, Quanergy is now the only LiDAR manufacturer to commercially produce an integrated software and hardware platform solution, enabling a entirely new level of smart awareness for autonomous vehicles and beyond. LiDAR sensors use lasers that send pulses that reflect off objects to measure directly the distance and shape, creating a detailed 3D map of the physical world. However, in order to perceive what these objects are and where they are located, additional technology is needed to interpret the 3D data from the sensor. Qortex has been developed over 10 years to accomplish this feat with high accuracy and ensure a flexible, modular and scalable approach to deploying LiDAR-enabled applications.”
Dr. Louay Eldada, founder and CEO of Quanergy, commented, “Quanergy is committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible with LiDAR, and is now the only commercially available full system LiDAR solution provider… Working in combination with Quanergy’s LiDAR sensors, perception software applications derived from Qortex provide the necessary information to make informed decisions in real time, giving autonomous vehicles and smart machines across industries one of the most advanced understandings of their environment.”
