Baraja welcomes LiDAR photonics experts to the executive team to help cutting edge research

The revolutionized Spectrum-ScanTM technology for autonomous vehicles is now being expanded by photonics and automotive technology veterans Yannick K Lize and Pieter Kerstens as a VP of Research & Development.

Lize and Kerstens have years of experience in silicon photonics and high-tech engineering, respectively, at companies including Intel, Velodyne, and JDSU, as well as engineering and engineering related to the future of

These appointments are the latest in a series of major milestones for Baraja, including the recent announcement of ties to Tier 1 automotive supplier Veoneer to manufacture its LiDAR technology for the next generation of autonomous vehicles, as

"Yannick and Pieter are both experts in bringing cutting-edge photonics technologies quickly to commercial scale and will further expand our Spectrum-ScanTM LiDAR as we enable truly autonomous driving," said Federico Collart "With their decades of experience in their respective fields of optical technology and LiDAR innovation, Yannick and Pieter will enrich our already outstanding R&D and engineering teams, and I am confident they'll play key roles in

Lize was previously Vice-President of R&D at some very successful startups. Before that, he was Intel's vice president of Product Development in the Silicon Photonics Product Division, where his team brought to market the company'd first silicon photonic products targeted for the business.

The data center interconnects. These products dominated the segment in a few short years and established Intel as masked player in Silicon Photonics. He brings his optical technology expertise to Baraja's growing R&D team in Silicon Valley, where Lize and his team are developing the next generation of Spectrum-Scan applications.

"From the start of our discussions, I was intrigued, and I wanted to know more about Baraja's technology. With my background in LiDAR, tunable lasers, and optical components and system R&D, I saw the opportunity to unite to unlock L4 autonomous driving with Baraja's product, said Lize "Baraja's LiDAR has finally solved the problems that the industry has been stuck on for years. I truly believe that Baraj will become the definition of high performance LidAR."

Kerstens was previously VP of Engineering at Velodyne, where he led LiDAR for autonomous vehicles, UAVs and other applications. With Baraja, Kerstens is in the forefront of autonomous vehicle movement and will focus on preparing the first LiDAR to enable true L4 autonomous driving technology.

"I've always been excited about the potential for LiDAR, and now with Baraja, I can continue to take the initiative of the autonomous vehicle movement and give the world the first LidAR to enable real L4 autonomous "Throughout my career, I always pursued my interests and curiosity, and now, with all these amassed experiences, it is a role where all of these experiences can serve something greater."

Baraja's Spectrum-ScanTM LiDAR combines proven photonics and optical technologies from the telecommunications industry to rethink environment scanning for autonomous vehicles. Spectrum-ScanTM sets a new benchmark for autonomous mobility, built to deliver dependable resolution at an effective range of more than 250 metres on highways, city streets, and heavy industry.

The system used in harsh terrains, from outback mines to arctic tundra, to solve the problem of legacy LiDAR systems, and enable true levels 4 autonomy.

Baraja's revolutionary Spectrum-ScanTM LiDAR rethinks the way autonomous vehicles see their world.

The Spectrum-ScanTM technology is based on proven optical and photonic technologies from the telecommunications industry and rapidly transforms infrared lasers into prism-like optics, allowing the laser to send different The pointclouds are extremely high-resolution and are resistant to interference from other light sources and LiDAR systems.

It's solid state in the fast axis and the Spectrum-ScanTM sensors have fewer moving parts and are more tolerant to the factors that have hindered traditional LiDAR systems such as heat, shock and vibration It delivers high resolution detection capability for detection of objects at distance and speed, and is free from the interface from other sensors and light sources.

Baraja Spectrum-ScanTM operates on the 1550 nm infrared spectrum, making it safe for human eyes, and creates crystal-clear pointclouds with a vertical axis and responsive focus

Spectrum-ScanTM is built for maximum reliability in real-time environments. Spectrum-ScanTM is a technology tested on the rocky roads of mines and the western arctic tundra - and can resist heat, shock and vibration compared to other systems. The worst of the tough environments,
