Next-generation LiDAR-based security solutions for SA

Quanergy Systems, a leading innovator and provider of next-generation 3D LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensors and perception software, is to make its Q-Guard smart security solutions available in South Africa through local distribution specialist, Duxbury Networking.
Q-Guard is a is a complete LiDAR-based security system for perimeter fence monitoring and intrusion detection. It enables real-time 3D mapping, object detection, tracking and classification.

“Simulating a virtual fence, Q-Guard substantially reinforces perimeter security for critical infrastructure and valuable resources,” says Teresa Huysamen, a business unit manager at Duxbury Networking. “It comes complete with one or multiple LiDAR-based detection sensors and a perception software module for object tracking and classification.”

The system is designed to analyse the object detected, track its movement, classify its type to determine whether it’s human or non-human, and alert the security agent. Q-Guard also has ‘slew-to-queue’ capability to alert and guide cameras to the area of detection.

Huysamen says the Q-Guard solution includes the M8 long-range LiDAR sensor enabling the use of smart sensing in a wide range of situations. The M8 sensor boasts a 360-degree field of view, long measurement range, high accuracy, fine resolution and works well in light or dark environments, in addition to operating effectively in all weather conditions.

Qortex is Quanergy’s next generation perception software platform. Pioneering a new level of smart awareness, the core platform serves as the main technology framework compatible with Quanergy’s full suite of LiDAR sensors.

Qortex is modular, scalable and incorporates machine vision, deep learning and 3D perception proprietary algorithms to produce one of the first integrated security-targeted software and hardware platform solutions.
