Inertial Sensors are Breaking Through the Autonomous Vehicle Hype Cycle
Autonomous transportation is heading into a temporary trough of market disillusionment, but for optimists, the age of self-driving enlightenment still looms large. For technologists, taking the driver out of the equation has released the sensor genie, opening new possibilities for MEMS sensors – from navigational assistance to anticipating mechanical failures. With the advent of Autonomous Transportation, MEMS is poised to do more and has a new role to play that will surprise you. This presentation will drill into nuances of autonomous transportation and explain where MEMS technology can provide that not too distant enlightenment in the areas of navigation assistance by providing accurate localization information when other sensors go “blind” and in vehicle health monitoring, providing advanced notification of impending mechanical failures.

Going Beyond: In-Cabin Sensing the Next Wave of AI
Most of the attention on autonomous vehicle has been focused on exterior sensing and how the vehicle relates to its environment. However, external factors aren’t the only threat to safety or cause for consideration as new technologies are arising to sense what is happening within the cabin of the car. These AI technologies will bring about an understanding of passengers through in-cabin sensing and ultimately making AV’s fully passenger aware.

Evolution of Automotive LiDAR: From Mechanical to Solid State
Slawomir Piatek / Sr. University Lecturer & Scientific Consultant / NJIT & Hamamatsu
A self-driving car will likely need a LiDAR to provide 3D information at a video rate. Designing a functional LiDAR that meets automotive industry requirements is challenging. The presentation first reviews several types of LiDAR, each based either on time-of-flight or frequency modulation principle. It then focuses on a flash (or solid state) LiDAR, discussing its physics principles, photon budget, and imaging detectors. A particular attention will be paid to single-photon detection with a SPAD array.
