June 2, 2020 Leuven – XenomatiX, Tier II provider of true solid state lidars, launches a new business unit, 6D Road Scanning services to strengthen its position as innovator and facilitator of road safety and comfort.
Since roads wear with loads and seasons, 6D road scanning allow road managers to effectively analyze the road surface for cracks, waviness, rutting, potholes or other damages and to determine if and when maintenance or repair is needed.
Using its true solid state lidar systems, XenomatiX acquires and analyses high-precision and reliable pavement condition data for any road network. The Road Scanning sensor is mounted on top of a regular vehicle and digitizes the road surface, collecting following types of data: 3D pointclouds, surface reflectivity data, camera images and detailed GPS data. These measurements can be delivered as raw data or can be analyzed by XenomatiX’ road engineering experts using generic or customized algorithms.
‘The new 6D Road Scanning Services are a natural extension of our company’s core business.’, adds XenomatiX’ CEO Filip Geuens ‘We help optimizing road infrastructure and increasing the efficiency of road maintenance to make roads and cities safer and more comfortable, in the most efficient and affordable way.’
XenomatiX is the first company to offer true solid-state LiDAR solutions for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD). XenomatiX designs and builds products that enable precise real-time 3D digitization and an understanding of a vehicle’s surroundings, empowering applications that lead to safer and more comfortable vehicles.
The company’s next generation LiDAR solutions provide unequalled object detection and tracking, free space detection, road profile measurement and localization capabilities, based on reliable proven technology. XenomatiX constantly improves and invests in its technology to meet the needs of automotive OEMs, Tier 1 manufacturers and integrators and stay ahead of market evolutions and industry requirements.
