“The EPIC Meeting on LIDAR Technologies for Automotive at Anteryon was exceptional. The moderation was great and engaging, helping to bring companies and people together and removing the barrier between the speakers and the audience often seen during other conferences. The EPIC team did a great job!”

EPIC Meeting on LIDAR Technologies for Automotive

The LiDAR demands in terms of size, price and reliability by the automotive industry, require new developments in photonics. The vision of the automotive industry is to place LIDARs in headlights and taillights, bumpers, roof, and other places in the car, at low cost, high durability, low maintenance, high stability, each of these locations with different required specifications.

The EPIC Meeting on LiDAR for Automotive brought together the full supply chain to discuss the unmet needs from TIER1 suppliers and OEMs, and the needs for new photonics developments, such as wafer-level and freeform optics, high power laser diodes, integrated photonics, assembly processes.

The meeting was hosted by Anteryon and sponsored by PIXAPP, JePPIX, ficonTEC, MIRPHAB and fastree 3D.

“The EPIC Meeting on LIDAR Technologies for Automotive at Anteryon was very well-organized. It was my first EPIC meeting, and I enjoyed it.

I came out of the meeting with good industry connections and with some of them we are already talking future collaborations.”
