Abstract: Autonomous vehicles are a revolution to the traditional vehicle industry, where the key component lies in the Lidar for the self-driving cars. In recent years, quite a lot of Lidar start-up companies emerge in China. With the direct help from these Chinese Lidar companies and industry consulting companies, I will present the current developments of the mechanical and the solid-state Lidars for autonomous vehicles in China. A bold forecast for the bright future will be also discussed.

Bio: Zhengxi Cheng received M.Sc. degree in microelectronics and solid-state electronics from Fudan University in 2007 and Ph.D. degree in microelectronics and solid-state electronics from Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2012. Since 2007, he has worked in Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics. He has been promoted to an Associate Professor since 2013. From 2015 to 2017, he was a visiting researcher with the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology, The University of Tokyo, Japan. His research is focused on opto-electronic integrated circuit, optical MEMS devices technology.

Note: The Seminar Series is eligible for ECTS credits in the EDMI doctoral program

Note: After the lecture, there will be time for discussion and interaction with the distinguished speaker, sandwich lunch and refreshments sponsored by the Institute of Microengineering will be provided for attendees in front of the lecture hall (BM 5104, ca. 13h15)
