World Premiere at CES 2022 Blickfeld announces industry-first smart 3D LiDAR alongside launch of Percept software to mark beginning of a new LiDAR era
- Blickfeld launches Percept, a perception software for translating LiDAR data into actionable information easily
- Industry-first smart 3D LiDAR "Qb2" announced that combines software and hardware and thus gathers and processes LiDAR data on one groundbreaking device
- "Percept" and "Qb2" mark the beginning of a smart LiDAR era for industrial applications in which users will be able to profit easily from real-time 3D data
MUNICH, Jan. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- At CES 2022, Blickfeld, the Munich-based start-up developing breakthrough high performance and mass-producible LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensing technology, today launched its groundbreaking perception software, Percept. Designed for Blickfeld's Cube sensor range for industry use, Percept includes functions like movement-based detection and tracking of objects, object classification and counting, zone occupancy detection, and zone entry detection with integrated alarm generation. This makes Percept suitable for a wide variety of applications, such as crowd analytics, traffic management, smart industry, and security solutions.
With the launch of Percept, Blickfeld also announces an industry and world-first - the next generation of LiDAR, the Qb2. Combining software and hardware in one device, Qb2 is an integrated smart LiDAR that requires no additional computers, servers, or adaptor boxes, to provide efficient capturing and processing of 3D data in one single unit for the first time.
Introducing the state-of-the-art perception software, Percept
Blickfeld's Percept software, with its user-friendly interface, now makes extracting value from 3D data simpler than ever before: Users are empowered to easily create and deploy projects with the help of a browser-based setup wizard and directly generate actionable data. No specific know-how in 3D data processing is necessary to develop scalable solutions for a variety of purposes. Percept has already successfully been deployed in customer projects, including a people counting application at Frankfurt airport.
The next step is coming soon: powerful software on the device
The future of LiDAR is smart. Powerful software will be crucial to get the most benefit from the immense data captured. Embedding the software in the sensor allows it to directly generate comprehensive information in the form of object or event lists. This will make the handling even easier, and allows customers to quickly deploy and operate LiDAR solutions.
