Photonics Forums

Our Forums

Yole Développement is proud to collaborate once more with the China International Optoelectronic Expo (CIOE) to organize a new edition of the Photonics Forums. They will take place on 7 & 8 September 2022 in Shenzhen, alongside the 24th CIOE.

Each forum will last half a day and include 6+ presentations of the main industry players. Attendees will then be able to access more than 18 exclusive talks during the three forums and networking times.  

Within the next two years, more than 20 car models are expected to be released with at least one embedded LiDAR. The goal is to achieve automated driving on highways, which is the first step to reach level 3 autonomy. Among these 20 car models, there is a variety of players and technologies that are entering the automotive industry. But this is only the beginning as other players and new technologies are expected in a near future.

This event will explore recent trends in optical module technology and applications for datacom and telecom. Network traffic is forecast to grow exponentially in coming years and optical communication is still highly dynamized by the cloud for telework and personal use, video-on-demand from applications such as YouTube and Netflix, and 5G expansion. The constant increase in data transfer capacity and density is also driving new technologies developments.

3D sensing is a fundamental technology, and it is still in its infancy. Apple has brought 3D sensing into mobile applications. Other mobile brands have followed, seeing 3D sensing as a technology with huge potential, and the market is booming. With the Metaverse arriving, 3D sensing is gradually showing its strength.
