Title: Solid State LiDAR for 3D Sensing for Autonomous Vehicles


Dr. Louay Eldada is CEO and co-founder of Quanergy Systems, Inc.


The evolution of LiDAR smart sensing technology into the solid state implementations of the S3 and S3-Qi contains no moving or vibrating parts, on both macro and micro scales. This assures the highest level of performance, reliability, longevity and cost efficiency while enabling increasingly smaller footprints that require less power. The compact package is seamlessly integrated into vehicles or any other platform that stand to benefit from smart, capable, always-aware perceptive vision. Through the interaction of three main components emitter, receiver and signal processor the S3 generates half a million point-cloud data points per second to accurately create a real-time long-range 3D view of the environment and provide the ability to recognize and classify objects.

Bio of Dr. Louay Eldada:

Louay Eldada is CEO and co-founder of Quanergy Systems, Inc. Dr. Eldada is a serial entrepreneur, having founded and sold three businesses to Fortune 100 companies. Quanergy is his fourth start-up. Dr. Eldada is a technical business leader with a proven track record at both small and large companies and with 71 patents, is a recognized expert in nanotechnology, photonic integrated circuits and advanced optoelectronics. Prior to Quanergy, he was CSO of SunEdison, after serving as CTO of HelioVolt, which was acquired by SK Energy. Dr. Eldada was earlier CTO of DuPont Photonic Technologies, formed by the acquisition of Telephotonics where he was founding CTO. His first job was at Honeywell, where he started the Telecom Photonics business and sold it to Corning. He studied business administration at Harvard, MIT and Stanford, and holds a Ph.D. in optical engineering from Columbia University.
