Velodyne Lidar’s Anand Gopalan, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Stephen Nestinger, Ph.D., Director of Mechanical Engineering, will lead conference sessions about the levels of lidar sensor performance and reliability required for autonomous vehicles to operate safely. Gopalan and Nestinger will review how Velodyne’s proven product line of lidar sensors enable autonomy and improve safety in lower-speed urban environments and at highway speeds. Additional discussion points will focus on Velodyne‘s continued status as the industry leader in the design and manufacture of lidar sensors, the essential components of self-driving cars. The sessions will also outline the company’s commitment to inventing and refining new technologies.

How Lidar is Shaping Our Autonomous Future

IDTechEx Show! attendees will hear Gopalan discuss lidar’s role and importance in autonomous perception. The session will also address various misconceptions about the current state of lidar technology and its future outlook.

“As the leader in lidar technology, Velodyne has a unique, bird's-eye view on where the autonomous mobility industry is headed in terms of the hardware requirements for perception. This session will explore why lidar is needed for level 4 and level 5 autonomous vehicles, and how lidar can vastly enhance the performance of level 2+ advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). It will also examine what lidar will and won’t be able to do in the future as the technology matures,” said Gopalan.
