Quanergy Systems, Inc., a leading provider of OPA-based solid state LiDAR sensors and smart 3D solutions for automotive and IoT, announced a collaboration with Securitas France, a leader in intelligent protective services. The collaboration provides the security industry’s first remote mobile surveillance solution with 3D LiDAR integration.
The mobile surveillance solution, Mobile Cam 3D from Securitas, combines Quanergy’s M-Series LiDAR sensors, and security cameras to secure temporary and remote sites like construction sites, storage areas, parking areas, and more. The mobile surveillance units are being deployed for perimeter protection and intrusion detection where infrastructure is limited.
The unique solution features robust 3D LiDAR sensors that provide reliable detection and advanced situational awareness of security threats. The solution can be monitored remotely thanks to Quanergy’s integrated computer vision platform, QORTEX DTC™, which provides real-time detection, tracking, and identification of objects in the secured area.
We have selected Quanergy’s innovative 3D LiDAR solutions in our electronics security services in France. Its high accuracy and low rate of false alarms enable us to provide highly reliable solutions to our customers. The rate of nuisance alarm is divided by ten, making the remote monitoring by our operators more efficient. This is a major milestone in making a more reliable security process for perimeter intrusion.”
Laurent Zaffran, Vice President of Electronic Security for Securitas in France
Quanergy’s M-Series of LiDAR sensors operate reliably in any lighting or weather condition, making them an ideal detection solution for outdoor remote security applications. The solution offers full object classification, including object distance and velocity, and provides 360-degree coverage. With a range up to 200 meters in diameter, M-Series LiDAR sensors can monitor large outdoor areas with just a few compact, portable devices.
In June, Quanergy entered into a definitive merger agreement with CITIC Capital Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: CCAC) (“CCAC”). Upon closing of the transaction, the combined company will be named Quanergy Systems, Inc. and is expected to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the ticker symbol “QNGY.” The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
