Unmanned Security Expo New York is co-located with ISC East and Infosecurity New York with more than 8,000 security and public safety professionals, buyers, and influencers expected to attend the events at the Javits Center on Nov. 14-15.

Velodyne will feature a live demonstration of its VLS-128 lidar sensor, which provides industry-leading range and resolution, detecting vehicles and people with unrivaled precision under challenging environmental conditions.

“Velodyne Lidar helps security and public safety organizations keep pace with the changing threat landscape in protecting people and assets,” said Frank Bertini, UAV and Robotics Business Manager, Velodyne Lidar. “Our technology fuels autonomous aerial and ground solutions with a 360° view to see the entire environment around the system at a range of up to 300 meters. It is available in multiple form factors to support a variety of drone-based and ground-based applications.”

One of the most critical advantages of Velodyne’s lidar is the ability to detect threats in a 3D space, specifically in the air. Most intrusion detection technologies today can only detect ground-moving objects, such as people and vehicles. With the advent of flying drones and sky taxis, it is now imperative to be able to detect aerial intrusions and react accordingly. Many of these new aerial threats are too small to detect with conventional radar. Other technologies, such as pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) cameras, struggle with their limited field of view. Velodyne’s lidar is the key technology in autonomously monitoring entry points to critical infrastructure such as tunnels, nuclear facilities, and high-rise buildings.

Due to their small form factor and low power consumption, Velodyne Lidar’s sensors are designed to facilitate integrating UAS and UBV devices with ground stations. Velodyne provides comprehensive documentation and support, as well as an expansive, global third-party integrator network. Velodyne sensors have built-in Robot Operating System (ROS) integration and can be daisy-chained together to create a cohesive network of multiple sensors.

If you are a security professional who is interested in seeing Velodyne Lidar at the Unmanned Security Expo in New York City, on Nov. 14-15th, please contact Frank Bertini at fbertini@velodyne.com to secure a complimentary one-day hall pass.

Lenovo Data Center Group Delivers Broad Edge Computing Portfolio, Expands Investments in IoT22.2.2019 16:13:00Tiedote

Next week at MWC Barcelona, Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG) will showcase continued investments in its solutions supporting IoT and edge computing as part of its IoT growth plan over the next few years. Building on the momentum of its fifth consecutive quarter of profit growth, Lenovo DCG is building a portfolio that takes infrastructure to where the data is, whether that be in the traditional data center, in the cloud or increasingly, at the edge. Today, around 10 percent of enterprise-generated data is created and processed outside a traditional centralized data center or cloud. By 2022, Gartner predicts this figure will reach 75 percent. This migration is driving increased concerns around data privacy, security and regulations coupled with challenges of latency, bandwidth and downtime. Lenovo is addressing these challenges by creating a broad portfolio of edge computing offerings that address the different ways that customers want to deploy edge computing solutions for IoT use cases.
