After a long break, Blickfeld had five international trade fair participations scheduled for the early summer of 2022. Not only the team was highly motivated to finally make and maintain personal contacts again, but also the visitors at the Blickfeld booth once again came from all over the world to learn more about the company and the LiDAR technology. The main attraction was a live demo where the sensors could be experienced in action.
The Best of Sensors Awards program by Questex’s Sensors Converge and Fierce Electronics honors the best in sensor technologies and the electronics ecosystem, people and companies. This year, Blickfeld was awarded in the category “Startup of the Year”.
Percept software version 1.6 adds a new reset value feature to the volume measurement zone and further improves general performance and stability requirements, including an improved user interface for managing large project setups.
Blickfeld, the breakthrough LiDAR sensor technology company creating innovative hardware and software products, will be expanding its operations into the US.
To support Blickfeld’s operations on the ground in the US, the company will open a new office in the Detroit area, to establish its strategic North American location. Blickfeld plans to hire 25 more people by the end of 2023.
As part of the IN2Lab research project, Blickfeld is working with project partners such as Audi, Continental, the Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation and Infrastructure Systems IVI and the Ingolstadt University of Applied Sciences to develop a system that provides automated and autonomous driving with environmental information collected from the infrastructure for additional safety.
Blickfeld’s technology empowers TUfast Eco (TU Munich) and Elbflorace (TU Dresden) to navigate race tracks autonomously in the upcoming 2022 racing season. The company sponsors both student teams with their advanced LiDAR sensors to support them in the autonomous challenges of the racing competitions.
Our Percept software version 1.3 empowers users to continuously measure bulk volumes enabling e.g. just-in-time stockpile management. Additional features include the creation of multiple zones with the same setting and auto-alignment of the sensor’s point cloud to the virtual ground.
The Deutsche Bahn subsidiary is working with project partners on an autonomous shuttle bus with teleoperation.
Connecting rural regions better to public transport, increasing user acceptance of autonomous services, making mobility more sustainable – the research project “Bavarian Autonomous Remote-Controlled Shuttle” (BARCS) is contributing to highly relevant and impressive goals of our time.
Blickfeld has been chosen as one of the most promising German tech start-ups by the global analyst platform “Tracxn” and was included in their „Soonicorn Club 2022“.
The Blickfeld “Cube 1 Outdoor” LiDAR sensor is protected in accordance to IP65 against ingress of dust and jets of water from all directions. Power-over-Ethernet technology simplifies installation and maintenance, reduces the number of accessories required and thus the complexity of comprehensive LiDAR systems.
