“Is LiDAR ready for mainstream security use?” asks Security Magazine. They sat down with Akram Benmbarek, AEye’s VP of Business Development and Strategic Initiatives at CES 2020, who says “the most suitable customers for security applications today are critical infrastructures and government agencies."
Having reached capacity at their Pleasanton headquarters, AEye has leased a 55,000 sq. ft office space at 1 Park Place in Dublin California, which will accommodate 350 employees and ensure the company is poised for growth and success. AEye has already begun to move its employees to the new headquarters, and will complete the move in early 2020.
EE Times interviewed AEye’s VP of Product Management, Aravind Ratnam, at AutoSens Brussels 2019 for their article "6 Trends on ‘Perception’ for ADAS/AV." Ratnam explains how only AEye's iDAR can “address certain corner cases" that conventional perception systems for ADAS and fully autonomous vehicles have difficulty handling reliably.
In the May 2019 issue of SAE’s Autonomous Vehicle Engineering (AVE) magazine, AEye’s technical product manager, Indu Vijayan, argues that conventional metrics used for evaluating the unique capabilities of more advanced lidar systems are inadequate, failing to address real-world driving problems facing autonomous vehicles. In ‘New Performance Metrics for Lidar,’ Indu proposes that new measurements, such as object revisit rate and instantaneous (angular) resolution, are more advantageous for autonomous vehicle development.
