Blickfeld’s Cube sensors are now eligible of carrying the Korea Certification (KC) mark, verifying the product’s compliance with the requirements of the industry standards for electromagnetic compatibility in South Korea.
For the 12th time, Automotive News Europe has honored up-and-coming leaders from the automotive industry with the Rising Stars Awards. This year, Blickfeld founder Florian Petit was also among the honorees, winning the popular award in the Entrepreneurship category.
At POWTECH 2022, Blickfeld will showcase a solution for measuring the volume of bulk material, in real time – making the asset management process more efficient and enabling companies to digitally record their inventory.
Blickfeld’s 3D LiDAR solutions measure the precise distance and size of intruding objects and people for perimeter security systems. The associated detection software “Percept” allows for reliable alarm triggers, distinguishing between people and smaller objects, meaning false alarms caused by small animals for instance, can be effectively avoided. Meeting the highest security requirements, Blickfeld’s solutions are ideally suited for critical infrastructure uses.
The European Commission’s funding programme Horizon2020 has granted Blickfeld €1.8 million for developing a highly scalable, small, and inexpensive high-resolution 3D LiDAR for the mass market. The two-year project was successfully completed in May 2022.
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.
