At CES in Las Vegas this week (Jan 9-12) the possibilities of lidar are being expanded in a new collaboration between software developer Outsight and lidar manufacturer PreAct.
The new partnership promises to herald a new era in the industry, where high-resolution lidar technology becomes accessible at unprecedentedly affordable prices, revolutionizing the fields of smart infrastructure and people-flow monitoring.
PreAct’s unique approach reduces near-field flash lidar system costs by up to tenfold compared to existing solutions, without compromising on resolution. Combined with Outsight’s cutting-edge Spatial AI Software platform, this powerful technology can now be deployed on a large scale across various industries.
The partnership is a game-changer, particularly for applications requiring detailed spatial analysis and monitoring, such as smart city infrastructure, retail, transportation hubs and in any other context requiring efficient people flow management in high-density areas.
Outsight’s expertise in transforming raw 3D lidar data into actionable insights complements PreAct’s affordable, high-resolution lidar technology. Together, they provide an integrated solution that enables operators of transportation hubs, retailers and industrial sites to tap into a new dimension of spatial intelligence. This collaboration ensures the delivery of smarter, safer, and more sustainable environments.
Outsight and PreAct Technologies are demonstrating the capabilities of this partnership at CES 2024. Attendees can experience firsthand the potential of these integrated solutions in the West Hall, at Outsight’s booth 6374 and PreAct Technologies’ booth 6366.
