Occupational safety and increased efficiency

3D LiDAR sensors from Quanergy can prevent collisions between vehicles and people, one of the warehouse’s most significant safety measures. Quanergy’s Flow Management LiDAR solutions provide 95%+ detection accuracy and identify as well as track objects in all lighting and atmospheric conditions. By using LiDAR sensors, either as stationary installations or in combination with vehicle-mounted computers, logistics companies can provide a safer working environment for their employees. LiDAR and edge servers can provide perimeter protection for valuable goods and locations and lead to significant efficiency gains.

Zero PII Risk, GDPR compliant people counting

In the wake of COVID-19, many regions hold retailers and mall operators accountable for keeping the record of the number of visitors (customers) and their behavior. Because LiDAR solutions don’t use facial recognition technology nor require opt-in by users, Advantech together with Quanergy can guarantee the anonymity of people and provide GDPR compliant solutions for people counting and tracking, occupancy and distance monitoring.
