Quanergy to Feature ‘Qortex for Security' at IFSEC

LiDAR-based system offers surveillance automation and real-time people detection, tracking and classification

SUNNYVALE, Calif.-- (BUSINESS WIRE) - Quanergy Systems, Inc., a global leader in the design and development of solid state LiDAR sensors and smart sensing solutions, today announced that it will be demonstrating its LiDAR-based security system at multiple booths during IFSEC International, Europes premier security trade show. This years conference will take place June 19-21, 2018 in London, UK.


Quanergys security system, Qortex for Security, is an innovative, LiDAR-based 3D perimeter fencing and intrusion detection system. An integrated hardware and software platform, this intelligent security solution combines Quanergys M8 mechanical LiDAR sensor with its proprietary Qortex perception software. The platform is fully integrated into existing VMS (Video Management System) and PSIM (Physical Security Information Management) infrastructure and offers surveillance automation with real-time people detection, tracking and classification.

"Qortex for Security is a prime example of the many benefits that LiDAR hardware and software can provide for the security industry," said Dr. Louay Eldada, CEO of Quanergy. "As the need for smarter, more efficient, and more effective security grows, LiDARs potential to integrate with other technologies to provide innovative, cost-effective comprehensive security solutions will make it an invaluable resource for companies, governments, and landowners."

Quanergys systems will be demonstrated in multiple IFSEC booths:
● Milestone (booth C340): Milestone will be using Quanergy sensors to demonstrate Multi-LiDAR Fusion and automated PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) camera tracking within the Milestone XProtect VMS environment. The demo will showcase Qortex for Securitys people detection and tracking abilities within the XProtect environment represented in alarm manager.
● CNL (booth C340): CNL Software will also be in the Milestone booth as part of Milestones ecosystem partner program. CNL will demonstrate its enhanced PSIM features, which include a live integration with Quanergys LiDAR systems.
● Oprema (booth C220): Opremas booth will be streaming a live feed of a Qortex for Security system overlooking Opremas secure delivery yard and surrounding car park area. The virtual simulation will demonstrate to viewers what the Qortex system is capable of in a realistic security environment.
● Genetec (booth C200): Genetecs booth will feature a video demo of the integration of Quanergys Qortex plugin for the Genetec VMS system (Version 5.7).

Quanergy announced the release of the Qortex platform in January 2018. The proprietary software framework incorporates machine vision, deep learning and 3D AI-based algorithms to perform key functions such as object detection, tracking and classification. Quanergys software solutions utilize building blocks from the Qortex framework to create software application bundles, including Qortex for Security, which are optimized for the target application. Other Qortex application bundles include Qortex for Automotive and Qortex for Industrial Automation.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
