Trailblazing Lidar Sensors and Software

At the Velodyne booth, exhibitors, customers and industry partners will have the opportunity to hear from Velodyne’s executives and technical experts about how the company’s sensors and software democratize lidar-based safety and autonomy. Among the products Velodyne will showcase are:

  • The Alpha Prime is the optimal long-range sensor for autonomous mobility. The Alpha Prime’s world-class combination of range, image clarity and field of view detects roadway objects with reliability and precision. This state-of-the-art sensor generates a high-quality point cloud in a wide variety of light conditions, with advanced sensor-to-sensor interference mitigation, power efficiency and thermal performance.
  • Velodyne‘s solid-state Velarray H800 is a lidar sensor architected for automotive-grade performance. The sensor is built using Velodyne’s breakthrough proprietary micro-lidar array (MLA) architecture. With combined long-range perception and a broad field of view, the Velarray H800 is designed for safe navigation and collision avoidance in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous mobility applications to achieve advanced driver assistance.
  • Velarray M1600, built with Velodyne’s MLA, provides excellent near-field perception for safe navigation, enabling touch-free movement and last-mile delivery robots to operate autonomously and safely without human intervention. This durable and compact sensor can be deployed in various environments and weather conditions and can be used in almost all weather throughout the year. Velodyne will feature a live Extended Reality (XR) demonstration of Velarray M1600 sensors.
  • Velodyne’s Intelligent Infrastructure Solution (IIS), which creates a real-time 3D map of roads and intersections, provides precise traffic monitoring and analytics that is not possible with other types of sensors such as cameras or radar. IIS reliably collects data in any lighting or weather condition, supporting year-round operation, while also protecting people's privacy. The solution can predict, diagnose and address road safety challenges, helping municipalities and other customers make informed decisions to take corrective action.
  • The Vella Development Kit (VDK) simplifies building autonomous solutions. VDK provides access to Velodyne’s breakthrough Vella perception software paired with its world-class lidar sensors.

Specifica Validates Best-in-Class Status for in vitro Antibody Discovery Platform in Two Key Peer Reviewed Publications29.1.2022 02:00:00 EET | Press release

Specifica, a privately held antibody engineering company focused on innovative in vitro antibody library and discovery tools, announced the publication of two peer-reviewed articles describing its Generation 3 Antibody Discovery Platform1,2. Antibodies are the fastest growing class of therapeutics, representing nine of the top twenty best-selling drugs3. The global antibody therapy market is projected to grow from $178.50 billion in 2021 to $451.89 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 14.1%4. Traditionally, therapeutic antibodies have been generated by harvesting immune responses, either from in-bred or transgenic mice, or from immune human subjects. Although there has been a long-standing interest in using in vitro antibody library approaches that avoid the use of animals, there have been two main concerns with antibodies from in vitro libraries: binding affinities tend to be lower, and poor developability characteristics are common, complicating their development as successful drugs.
