LiDAR Tech Fortifies Security Applications

Quanergy Systems, manufacturer of LiDAR sensors and smart 3D sensing solutions, has developed what it calls a first-of-its-kind LiDAR-driven security solution that provides a cost-effective and technology-based way to monitor and defend open and unprotected perimeters at national borders, airports, railroads, subways, power lines, power plants, and natural resource sites. The system utilizes LiDAR technology by Quanergy in concert with multiple security experts and the Border Commerce and Security Council. Primarily known as the technology that gives “sight” to autonomous vehicles, LiDAR operates by reflecting laser pulses off objects to measure distance, size and shape, and enables machines to sense, perceive, analyze and react to surroundings.

 

The solution consists of Quanergy’s intelligent security monitoring system, powered by the M8 LiDAR sensor and QORTEX artificial intelligence perception software. Multiple LiDARs create a virtual 3D point cloud to detect, classify, and track physical security breaches in any environment, day or night, and instantly alert authorities and direct them to a specific location. The system allows for monitoring to take place 24/7 and can be powered by solar panels with battery packs or grid power.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

Currently, Quanergy has a small-scale version of this solution on private riverfront property on the U.S./Mexico border in Del Rio, Texas, serving as a real-world example of an integrated intelligent system for border security. Current solutions, including ground sensors, cameras and physical structures, are all limited in their effectiveness, which is why this application was selected as a relevant test case.
