Between 2009 and 2018, pedestrian fatalities increased by 53% according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that more than 6,000 pedestrians are killed every year in traffic-related crashes.

To address these problems, lidar-based technologies are being implemented across industries, including for autonomous vehicles, advanced driver assistance and intelligent infrastructure. The webinar panel will discuss how lidar-equipped solutions are being deployed with the goal of saving lives.

The panel is moderated by Amy Ford, Vice President, Policy Programs and Mobility on Demand at ITS America. Webinar panelists are:

  • Nikhil Naikal – Vice President of Software Engineering, Velodyne Lidar
  • Asad Lesani – CEO, Blue City Technology
  • Olivier Le Cornec – CTO, NAVYA

“Lidar-based smart city and automated vehicle safety solutions can help save lives, improve mobility and promote sustainability. The panel discussion will share insights on how companies and government organizations are using lidar sensors to enable a new generation of intelligent infrastructure and deployment of autonomous vehicles,” said Ford.

Webinar attendees can hear from the expert panel how Velodyne’s sensors are used today to advance pedestrian and vehicle safety on the roadways, and improve mobility and efficiency in our communities,” said Sally Frykman, Chief Communications Officer, Velodyne Lidar.
