2nd Executive Forum on LiDAR for Automotive

Yole Events

Shenzhen, China

LiDAR is en route to mass production for the automotive market

The second Yole Développement and CIOE forum on LiDAR!

After a successful first edition, Yole Développement is proud to collaborate once again with the China International Optoelectronic Expo (CIOE) to organize the Second Executive Forum on LiDAR for Automotive. It will take place on September 5, 2019 in Shenzhen, alongside the 21st CIOE. This event presents applications and technologies within the LiDAR industry, and more specifically, automotive-oriented solutions.

With the integration of LiDAR in the Audi A8 in 2017, and the introduction of Waymo’s robotic car service in 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona, LiDARs are now on the roads. Autonomous driving is expected to be one of the next big things in the automotive industry. Several companies, including car manufacturers, Tier 1 suppliers, and LiDAR players, are preparing for mass production of automotive LiDAR with commercialization targets for 2020 and 2021. The automotive LiDAR supply chain is getting ready.

Join us in Shenzhen and participate in discussions about this key technology for the automotive industry!
