  • OIDA Forum on Optics in Autonomy
    27 June 2019, San Jose McEnery Convention Center, San Jose. This business development event aims to match leaders of transport applications needing new solutions with early-stage technologies....

    Applications are specifically in autonomous vehicles, such as cars, trucks, delivery vehicles, campus shuttle buses, delivery drones, and so forth. Technologies include LIDAR and other imaging subsystems, adaptive illumination systems, sensor fusion, and the in-vehicle optical data transmission and networking systems that link the subsystems together.

    While the ultimate activity is “matchmaking” the emphasis will be on the end-product vendors’ needs.  The workshop will focus on segments within the field that have particular promise today, and manufacturing issues related to these products.  Some key questions for discussion will be:

    • What is needed from the photonics industry?  Which are the problems that optics and photonics can have the greatest impact on?
    • What are the enabling technologies that have the most promise?
    • What are the bottlenecks or “showstoppers” among photonics technologies today, and potential solutions?

    Who should attend: 

    • Business development and strategic marketing staff from industry, including large companies and start-ups
    • Private and corporate investors
    • Program managers and research directors from government funding and research agencies
    • Directors from university centers and academic researchers
