Outsight’s SHIFT LiDAR Software is the 2023 Edge AI and Vision Product of the Year Award Winner in the Edge AI Software and Algorithms category. The SHIFT LiDAR Software is a real-time 3D LiDAR pre-processor that enables application developers and integrators to easily utilize LiDAR data from any supplier and for any use case outside of automotive (e.g. smart infrastructure, robotics, and industrial).

SHIFT LiDAR Software is the industry’s first 3D data pre-processor, performing all essential features required to integrate any LiDAR into any project (SLAM, object detection and tracking, segmentation and classification, etc.). One of our software’s greatest advantages is that it produces an “explainable” real-time stream of data low-level enough to either directly feed ML algorithms or be fused with other sensors, and smart enough to decrease network and central processing requirements, thereby enabling a new range of LiDAR applications. We believe that accelerating the adoption of LiDAR technology with easy-to-use and scalable software will meaningfully contribute to creating transformative solutions and products to make a smarter and safer world.

“The entire Outsight team is very proud that our 3D LiDAR processing software, SHIFT, was awarded as the 2023 BEST EDGE AI SOFTWARE by the Edge AI and Vision Alliance’s panel of independent industry judges. This is not only a milestone for our company, but for the whole LiDAR industry as well. Originally developed for the automotive industry, LiDAR technology can gather extremely precise spatial data but needs proper processing software to generate real-time actionable information. Our 3D LiDAR processing software is agnostic to the manufacturer, meaning that it can extract data from any type of LiDAR. This offers a unique opportunity for operators to deploy a cost-effective solution that outperforms traditional imaging technology such as cameras or radar in a wide range of different industries.”
Cedric Hutchings, Co-founder and CEO, Outsight

Outsight develops real-time 3D LiDAR perception solutions. Our mission is to make LiDAR-based spatial intelligence “plug-and-play” for use by application developers in diverse markets. We believe that accelerating the adoption of LiDAR technology with easy-to-use and scalable pre-processing will lead to the creation of transformative solutions and products that will make the world smarter and safer.

This award was presented at the 2023 Edge AI and Vision Product of the Year Awards Ceremony; the program is organized by the Edge AI and Vision Alliance. The Edge AI and Vision Product of the Year Awards celebrate the innovation and achievement of the industry’s leading companies that are enabling and developing products incorporating edge AI and computer vision technologies.
