    •Speaker: Dr. Essam Mitwally – Regional Director - MEA, Turkey & India, Quanergy FZ LLC (Dubai Internet City, HQ: Sunnyvale, Ca.):

    •Location: EB1-116

    •Time: 5:00pm – 6:00pm

    LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) Technology is similar to RaDAR (Radio Detection And Ranging), but instead of using radio microwaves, LiDAR sensors use light/laser pulses in the infrared band, and is based on Time of Flight measurements. LiDAR is the most accurate perception sensor that provides 3D object detection, measurement, tracking and classification of the surroundings. LiDAR was a niche technology for more than two decades, but is now emerging in several industries such as automotive, security, transportation, smart cities, industrial automation, mapping, robotics drones, agriculture, and mining. Much R&D in those verticals is currently being conducted. In this seminar, we shall provide an overview of the LiDAR technology as developed by Quanergy in Silicon Valley - San Francisco. The breakthrough by Quanergy is in bringing the size and cost considerably low to become practical for consumer markets, and in evolving from mechanical to the world’s first solid state lidar S3 (the Winner of the CES 2017 Best of Innovation Award for Vehicle Intelligence, and planned for use in Mercedes and most of autonomous cars by 2020). Similar to GITEX and CISCO Live events, we shall conduct a live demo of our LiDAR based physical security product Q-Guard used for intrusion detection in any weather and lighting conditions. It is the most effective sensor for securing critical infrastructures.

  • record_voice_over15 - Nov | The Application of 3D printing technology on medical health

    •Speaker: Prof. Chen Jimin – Professor & Director of 3D Printing Technology Center, Institute of Laser Engineering, Beijing University of Technology

    •Location: EB1-030 (Engineering Auditorium)

    •Time: 1:00pm – 2:00pm

    Digital medical 3D printing technology is a new hi-tech which combines traditional medical and digital design, computer science, bio technology and 3D print technology. It is closely related to people's livelihood and may change people's lives, health habits, health care as well as the traditional business model of the medical areas in the near future. Along with the progress of technology, the application of 3D printing in medical field is becoming more and more popular. Basically the application focuses on the three aspects. The printed 3D model is the simple application. The surgery makes use of the model to plan the processing before operation. The second is customized operation guide such as implant guide. It helps doctor to operate with special tools rather than the normal medical tools. These printed guide make the operation easy and time saving while operation. The third application of 3D printing in medical area is to print artificial bone or even organ inside human body. This is a big challenge we face at present time. In this paper we introduced an application of 3D printing technology in tumor operation. Currently for tumor treatment main methods are surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy. However, these methods are not satisfactory. Radioactive rays kill cancer cells as well as normal tissues. A radioactive seed implantation treatment technology has been introduced to treat tumor. It implants the tiny radioactive seeds into tumor and kill cancer cells only. The problem is to position the seeds in tumor exactly. Traditionally the digital laminography was used frequently during invasive procedure. It is expensive and cost time. We use 3D printing to print guide for this operation. Method puncture needle - localization guided by printed guide was performed in face tumors and prepared for operation. It is concluded that the new type guide is dominantly advantageous.
