Millimeter wave radar. Three-dimensional Lidar. Bifocal camera vision. As advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) sensors progress toward integration into more sophisticated levels of autonomous driving, melding the unique capabilities of various sensor technology is a front-line requirement.

This 60-minute Webinar focuses on sensor fusion and presents three industry experts’ latest thinking about how to derive maximum performance from collaborative sensor technology and how to continue reducing system cost, as well as the outlook for how – and when – sensor fusion is expected to integrate with machine-learning and artificial-intelligence advances.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentations. 


Thomas Heitzmann, Software Engineer, Comfort and Driving Assistance Group, Valeo Research and Development

Since 2012, Thomas Heitzmann has been a Software Engineer working on advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle applications at Valeo Driving Assistance Research. His main focus is the use of navigation system map data with multi-sensors data fusion (cameras, embedded vehicle sensors, etc.) for driving assistance systems. Previously, he was a signal processing engineer in RMS signal and an image processing engineer in VI technology. Thomas received his engineering degree on image processing from Telecom Strasbourg.

Jay Liebowitz, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Princeton Lightwave

Jay Liebowitz is the Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Princeton Lightwave, bringing executive leadership to PLI’s efforts in business development, marketing, and sales. He has 25 years of experience in numerous segments of the photonics industry. During the telecom boom, Jay defined the strategy of EPITAXX, then managed the pump laser business unit at Lasertron, and ultimately led the research, consulting, and M&A activities of RHK’s optical component practice. Over the past 12 years, he has expanded his experience into industrial, medical, and defense markets as an executive at TeraDiode and Teem Photonics, where he was President and oversaw its Lidar business. His educational background is both technical (a degree in physics from MIT) and business-oriented (an MBA from Wharton).

Jacob Perrin, Applications Engineer, dSPACE Inc.

Jacob Perrin is a dSPACE Applications Engineer focused on advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle applications. He also supports products in the areas of rapid controls prototyping and aerospace bus interfacing for hardware-in-the-loop systems. His main focus is enabling customers to develop, benchmark, and test multi-sensor processing and data fusion algorithms. Jacob holds a degree in computer engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
