Outsight has received the 2022 LIDAR Leader Award for Outstanding Enterprise
Achievement, presented by Geo Week and LIDAR Magazine within the framework
of the 2022 Geo Week Awards. The Geo Week Awards is a central annual event
in the field of LiDAR technologies, and the only industry event that
celebrates the innovations at the intersection of geospatial technologies
and the built world. The award confirms Outsight’s pivotal role in bringing
LiDAR beyond automotive to the entire geospatial market, such as intelligent
transportation systems, logistics, manufacturing, smart infrastructure,
defense, space and agriculture.
Outsight, the pioneer of 3D Spatial Intelligence solutions, has received the
2022 LIDAR Leader Award for Outstanding Enterprise Achievement. The award
criteria highlighted several of the company’s industry achievements,
including the company’s significant impact on the community through
technical excellence, professional development, and innovation in the field
of geospatial LiDAR technology. Outsight was chosen as the best company in
this category by numerous customers in the fields of mobile robotics, ITS,
people crowd monitoring, and industrial applications.
This is not the company’s first honor. Frost & Sullivan awarded Outsight the
2021 Global Technology Innovation Leadership Award for its Spatial
Intelligence solution Augmented LiDAR Box (ALB), which can process LiDAR
data from any LiDAR supplier in real time.
Outsight is also the only LiDAR processing company to have ever won the Best
of CES Innovation Award, as well as the youngest company to have ever won
the prestigious Prism Awards, which establishes a new standard in the
photonics industry. Among numerous additional recognitions, the company was
recently selected by the European Innovation Council as one of the TOP50
European Start-ups out of 3000 candidates for its EIC ScalingUp program.
The recognition of Outsight as the LIDAR Leader reflects a sea change in the
LiDAR market: this 3D sensing technology is no longer a purely automotive
technology. The capabilities of Spatial Intelligence technologies today
extend far beyond determining the state of the road. Now, LiDARs are capable
of performing more complex tasks, such as analyzing human and vehicles
interactions in a given space, calculating the exact volume of objects in a
truck, and enabling a variety of robotics applications. A good example of a
non-automotive LiDAR application is Outsight’s solution currently being used
at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport to conduct detailed analyses of passenger
flows and their interaction with airport devices.
“This award recognizes not only our team’s many years of dedication and
experience, but also the growing awareness of the value of LiDAR technology
and its potential applications in a variety of industries such as smart
cities, robotics, security, traffic management, and people flow monitoring,”
notes Raul Bravo, President and Co-founder of Outsight.
“The market for Spatial Intelligence is currently undergoing an exciting
phase of tremendous growth. LiDAR hardware is a critical component of it, it
is rapidly maturing and becoming increasingly affordable. However, customers
outside the automotive market are more concerned with the unique value of 3D
Spatial Intelligence data to their business than with the LiDAR technology
itself: they have no desire to become deep experts in 3D LiDAR processing.
Our goal is to make it as accessible as possible to the widest audience
possible. I’m delighted that Outsight is making this happen leading the
software aspect of the LiDAR market.”
To better understand the challenges and solutions when using LiDAR in
real-time applications, take a look at Outsight’s latest whitepaper.
Outsight develops real-time 3D LiDAR perception solutions.
Our mission is to make LiDAR-based Spatial Intelligence become plug & play,
so it can be used by application developers and integrators in any market.
Using any LiDAR with our pre-processing capabilities allows Smart Machines
and Smart Cities to achieve an unprecedented level of situational awareness.
We believe that accelerating the adoption of LiDAR technology with
easy-to-use and scalable pre-processing will highly contribute to creating
transformative solutions and products that will make a smarter and safer
