California-based Quanergy systems, one of the global leaders in the design and development of solid-state LiDAR sensors and smart sensing solutions, today announced that its innovative LiDAR sensors have been selected as ‘Best Consumer Product in Automotive and Telematics’ by Juniper Research in its annual ‘Future Digital’ awards for technology and innovation. Audi's ‘AI Traffic Jam Pilot’ was named runner-up in the same category.

The 'Future Digital' awards are awarded to companies that have made outstanding contributions to their industry and who are positioned to make a significant impact in the future.  Dr Louay Eldada, CEO and co-founder of Quanergy said, “With momentous strides made in the autonomous vehicle space, Quanergy has come out with S3 solid state LiDAR sensor, that will enable self-driving cars to become mainstream with consumers and on roadways.”

Quanergy is the leading provider of solid-state LiDAR sensors and perception software for real-time capture and processing of 3D spatial data and object detection, tracking and classification. It claims that it is the only LiDAR manufacturer to commercially produce an integrated hardware and software platform solution. The patented S3 is also claimed to be the world’s only solid-state LiDAR sensor designed to provide the highest level of performance, reliability, durability and dependability required in safety-critical applications such as autonomous vehicles while meeting the price point necessary in the automotive industry.
