During his presentation, Gradu, a distinguished engineer who is an Officer and the 2018 President of SAE International, will propose that the autonomous vehicle (AV) community work together – in a non-competitive way – to identify requirements and methods for lidar sensor testing and validation. The initiative’s goal would be to create a repository of sensor validation items that can become an industry standard and available to every company in the industry.

Velodyne has more than a decade of experience in the manufacturing and validation of lidar sensors that support the stringent safety and reliability requirements of automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers. The company has extensive in-house validation capabilities and a network of external labs. It also has knowledge from millions of road miles driven by its automotive, technology, and commercial vehicle customers.

“Companies in the autonomous space need to work together – just as companies in the aerospace industry cooperate on safety issues – in order to ensure the safe launch of AVs,” said Gradu. “Velodyne is committed to fostering this industry learning experience to apply rigor into sensor validation, especially in addressing corner cases that present high safety risk.”

At the International VDI Conference, attendees will hear Gradu provide an overview on advanced lidar solutions, along with a look at market segmentation and specific requirements for lidar. Gradu will address key considerations in lidar component testing and system validation. He will also examine safety and standardization implications for lidar in providing advanced driver assistance capabilities, such as Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

To help conference attendees learn about driver assistance systems, Velodyne and the International VDI Conference have posted a white paper on driver assistance technology on the conference website. The paper discusses the levels of vehicular automation defined by SAE, the advantages of lidar sensors, and how lidar enables a safety-first approach that provides significant advances in driver assistance.

Gradu’s session, called “Advanced Safety Lidar Solutions and Opportunities in their Testing and Validation,” takes place on February 14, from 9:00 to 9:30 a.m. at the Rilano Hotel in Munich, Germany.

Velodyne’s product portfolio meets the entire range of lidar needs for AVs and ADAS, providing the real-time perception data that enables safe and reliable operation. Velodyne produces both directional and surround-view sensors with best-in-class range and resolution. The rich computer perception data provided by these sensors allows immediate object and free space detection for safe navigation.

Comprehensive Tumor Profiling Promises New Therapeutic Options for Patients with Advanced Cancer22.4.2019 18:00:00 EESTTiedote

Published in Nature Medicine* today, results of WINTHER, the first study pioneered by the WIN Consortium** - - Genomic and transcriptomic profiling expands precision cancer medicine: the WINTHER trial - shows that RNA profiling together with DNA testing matches more patients with advanced cancer to personalized therapies than DNA profiling for tumor mutations alone. The WINTHER trial***, NCT01856296, led by investigators from Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology - VHIO (Spain), Chaim Sheba Medical Center (Israel) (Raanan Berger), Gustave Roussy (France) (Jean-Charles Soria), Centre Léon Bérard (France) (Pierre Saintigny), Segal Cancer Centre, McGill University (Canada) (Wilson H. Miller), UT MD Anderson Cancer Center (USA) (Jordi Rodon and Apostolia-Maria Tsimberidou) and University of California San Diego, Moores Cancer Center (USA) (Razelle Kurzrock), aimed to expand precision oncology to patients with advanced solid tumors that progressed after treatment with standard therapies.
