Cepton Director of Product Management and Marketing Klaus Wagner and Director of New Business Development Paul Rutter will introduce Cepton’s MMT®-based lidars as well as the Helius® intelligent perception software. They will provide an overview of ongoing worldwide projects using Cepton’s lidar solutions, including smart intersections, traffic analytics, electronic tolling, vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) intelligence, security and safety, and crowd analytics.

The webinar will also feature two case studies by Cepton partners Vortex IoT and The Indoor Lab, showcasing how lidar complements existing sensor technologies with its unique perception capabilities. Vortex IoT Managing Director Adrian Sutton and CTO Behzad Heravi will discuss how Vortex IoT’s lidar-enabled V2I solution turns buses into road inspection tools to monitor for attention-worthy maintenance issues and safety hazards city-wide in real-time. The Indoor Lab CEO Patrick Blattner will talk about how The Indoor Lab and Cepton are working together to bring accurate, anonymous lidar-based crowd analytics solutions into hotels, retail stores, stadiums, airports, corporate campuses, and other such venues.

“As Cepton CEO Dr. Jun Pei always says, people’s desire for safety will never end,” Klaus Wagner said. “Lidar not only enables high-precision perception for vehicles to enable safe autonomy but also collects valuable information in cities and spaces to help drive intelligent, transformative decisions. There are so many innovative ways to utilize lidar technology in smart infrastructure applications. At Cepton, we are proud to be making real-world impacts with our solutions. We are excited to showcase how lidar enables rich data analytics for smart systems while protecting people’s privacy.”
