Sands 302

This session will explore different use cases for new technology, and LiDAR (light detection and ranging) sensors, specifically, within the security sector. While LiDAR has been widely recognized for its groundbreaking potential to enable self-driving vehicles, LiDAR can serve as “eyes” for a huge variety of machines – including drones, roadside sensors, and security systems. LiDAR security systems utilize AI software to classify and track intruders– using features like unique surface profile curvature to distinguish between humans, animals, and objects and inform the response of security professionals. Executives from Quanergy and Cisco will share lessons learned from their efforts using LiDAR as a part of smart city security solutions, and how they see new advances in technology impacting the security sector.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe what LiDAR technology is, and why it is a game-changer for modern security systems.
2. Identify different LiDAR use cases in security.
3. Review best practices for selecting and implementing LiDAR based security solutions.
