AEye will also participate in a panel on the “Anatomy of Autonomy” at SAE’s CES Connect2Car event. The panel, scheduled for January 5 at 10am PT, will feature AEye’s founder and CTO Luis Dussan, as well as executives from Aurora, Uber, and Ford.
Baraja: Baraja has invented a new type of lidar called Spectrum-Scan™ which delivers the performance needed by the automotive industry to address the challenge of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and self-driving vehicles. At CES Baraja will be discussing how it utilizes the combination of Spectrum-Scan™, Random modulation continuous-wave (RMCW) and Doppler capabilities to solve issues found in legacy lidar systems such as interference immunity. The company is developing products designed to meet the needs of vehicle OEMs allowing for high-performing, high reliability, high quality and low-cost lidar packaged for seamless vehicle integration solving the issues of legacy lidar systems. Baraja’s Chief Commercial Officer Joseph Notaro will be at CES and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cepton: Booth No. 5553, West Hall – LVCC
Cepton’s booth will feature a Chevy Silverado and a Ford F-150 equipped with the company’s latest vehicle integration solutions, including one of the industry’s first full, in-vehicle integrations of lidar technology in automotive lighting systems. This integration solution combines both near-range blind spot elimination and long-range obstacle detection, and also includes a self-cleaning system from Koito Manufacturing to address real-life driving needs. Cepton will also unveil its ultra-slim, next-generation lidar, the Vista®-X120 Plus, which has been recognized in the CES 2023 Innovation Award program. The Cepton team will be available to showcase and discuss the company’s comprehensive portfolio of lidar solutions for both automotive and smart infrastructure applications. Attendees are encouraged to connect with the Cepton team ahead of the event by submitting a meeting request form.

Valeo: Booth CP-17, Central Plaza – LVCC
Visitors will be able to try out themselves the third-generation LiDAR laser scanner – SCALA 3 LiDAR. This new version of a key component in the sensor system enables vehicles to achieve approval for level 3 conditional driving automation. Unveiled in November 2021, the technology has been chosen by Stellantis to equip multiple models of its different automotive brands from 2024. Thanks to its laser beams, the third-generation LiDAR can see things that other technology and the human eye cannot – from over 150 meters away, it can identify an object left on an unlit black asphalt road that neither cameras, radars nor the driver can detect.
The Lidar Coalition is focused on promoting the deployment of lidar-based intelligent infrastructure and automotive safety technology. Light Detection and Ranging, or “lidar,” is a remote sensing method that uses invisible light pulses to illuminate and create a 3D map of the surrounding environment. Lidar is an important component in emerging transportation technologies including smart infrastructure, traffic management, autonomous vehicles, advanced driver assist systems, and many other applications. The Lidar Coalition engages in public policy advocacy, educational efforts, and thought leadership to maximize the public benefit of lidar deployment.
