Quanergy S3 Solid State LiDAR Wins CES Best of Innovation Award

Quanergy's S3 solid state LiDAR won the CES 2017 Best of Innovation Award in the vehicle intelligence category. The Se is the world's first solid state LiDAR used for computer-assisted perception for autonomous cars.


Quanergy Systems won the CES 2017 Best of Innovation Award in the vehicle intelligence category for its S3 solid state LiDAR sensor.

The S3, which was introduced at CES 2016, is the world’s first solid state 3D LiDAR sensor used for computer-assisted perception for safe and autonomous cars.

The S3 can detect, classify and track objects so the computer can assist the driver in avoiding accidents or take over the driving task in a safe manner. The sensor can be concealed into the body of any vehicle, ensuring uncompromised design. S3 generates half a million data points per second. With the ability to scan in every direction, the unit creates a live 3D view around a vehicle to detect, classify, and track objects in the scene.

Quanergy will demonstrate the S3 solid state LiDAR at CES in Booth 4138 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. CES, of course, runs January 5-8, 2017 in Las Vegas.

At CES 2017, both the Robotics Marketplace and CES Robotics Conference are presented by Robotics Trends. Attendees will get a first look at the latest robots entering the market and learn from experts about the specific ways that robots are redefining the consumer experience and pushing back the boundaries of innovation.

The robotics conference will take place on January 6, 2017 from 9 AM to 12:30 PM with three one-hour sessions on consumer robotics. Confirmed speakers include Steve Carlin (Softbank), Steve Cousins (Savioke), Helen Greiner (CyPhy Works), David Hanson (Hanson Robotics) and Ahti Heinla (Starship Technologies).
