The Internal-Combustion Engine’s Next Phase: Innovations and Development Priorities

Tuesday, December 6, 2022 at 12:00 pm U.S. EST

Although electric vehicles (EVs) are widely considered the transportation industry’s endgame, “sunsetting” the internal-combustion engine (ICE) will be a protracted process — one that will require countless engineering manhours to improve the ICE for its role in the propulsion evolution. This 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Automotive Engineering presents the latest innovations and ideas to keep the ICE compliant with ever-tightening global fuel-consumption and emissions regulations, as well as demanding and transitioning customer and commercial-market expectations, including optimizing conventional powertrain design into an electrified powertrain; ICEs’ role in the transition; new technologies; and more.

Advanced Solutions to Increase Range Capabilities and Reduce Cost in ToF and FMCW LiDAR

Thursday, December 15, 2022 at 11:00 am U.S. EST

Cost, range, size, and reliability are all key challenges facing LiDAR design engineers. New technologies address these challenges in long-range ToF and FMCW LiDAR including a triple-junction, laser diode development and high-gain SOA arrays for LiDAR applications. The shrinking cost of 1,550 nm sources is making 1,550 nm viable, and a benchmark study showed a LiDAR with a triple-junction, laser diode at 1,550 nm generated 80 times more photons, resulting in a more robust 3D picture from point clouds. This 60-minute Webinar examines these and other advancements that innovations in triple-junction, laser diodes bring to LiDAR including increased range capabilities and lower costs. Sponsor: SemiNex
