Paris – Outsight’s 3D LiDAR Processing Software has been named Product of the Year in the Software Category by the EDGE AI and Vision Alliance, a worldwide industry alliance to accelerate the adoption of edge AI and vision in products.
The award-winning sixth generation of Outsight’s software solution for LiDAR is the latest expression of the company’s innovative approach, backed by 73 patent filings and a strong presence in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia, serving clients across a wide range of industries and applications.
Initially designed for utilisation in self-driving cars, LiDAR uses lasers to measure distances, allowing usage in any lighting condition including total darkness, with an accuracy superior to cameras and radars. Owing to its reliance on laser points as opposed to images, LiDAR has no use for facial recognition, ensuring complete protection of privacy and greater energy efficiency.
Thanks to the billions of dollars initially invested in developing the hardware and the fierce competition among dozens of manufacturers, LIDAR technology is now mature for applications outside automotive, including People Flow monitoring, Road Safety Infrastructure and Security, offering not only high performance and reliability but also affordability.
Having pioneered a software-first, hardware-agnostic approach to LiDAR, Outsight enables professionals in any market to combine data from various hardware manufacturers to fit their unique needs and use cases.
Outsight’s Software solutions transform the raw data from these hardware sensors into actionable insights, analyzing positions and movements of objects, vehicles and people with precision.
According to Raul Bravo, President-Founder of Outsight, “We are honoured to see our 6th generation software being recognised at the global stage. This marks a significant milestone for us and the LiDAR industry as a whole, recognizing 3D as a crucial member of the Computer Vision family. We continue to integrate feedback from hundreds of customers globally, and look forward to developing new solutions for the growing field of 3D Edge AI software.”
Outsight’s software solutions track the motion of people and vehicles using 3D LiDAR data. Operators of transportation hubs like airports and train stations but also sport venues, road infrastructures and industrial sites can now access accurate and anonymous Spatial Intelligence data, in order to improve operations and increase user safety and satisfaction. Our international team of scientists and engineers drive the development of our solutions from Paris, San Francisco, and Sophia-Antipolis (Nice). To support our global outreach, we also operate commercial offices in the UK, Belgium, Spain, Hong Kong, and Singapore. We believe that accelerating the adoption of LiDAR technology through robust and scalable software solutions will significantly contribute to making the world smarter, safer and more sustainable.
