EPIC Online Technology Meeting on LiDAR Miniaturization
Online Event

Everyone wants a LiDAR! Users are asking this extraordinary technology for solutions in application fields such as automotive, mapping, Earth observation, or surveillance/security. Main technical requirements are typically related to the specific use but there is a general request for compact and light devices. During the meeting we discuss, mainly with the end-users and the packaging experts,  how steer the whole supply chain from laser manufacturers to detectors, passing through optics, electronics, scanners & image-processing devices.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
