• QORTEX DTC 2.2 provides sub-vehicle classification, expanded object tracking performance
• Ideal for smart intersections, smart highways, perimeter intrusion detection and challenging indoor environment like airports, office spaces
Sunnyvale, CA – October 28, 2021 —Quanergy Systems, Inc., a leading provider of OPA-based solid-state LiDAR sensors and smart 3D solutions for automotive and IoT, today announced the release of QORTEX DTC 2.2, the latest version of its 3D perception software, designed for advanced smart city and security applications.
In June, Quanergy entered into a definitive merger agreement with CITIC Capital Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: CCAC) (“CCAC”). Upon closing of the transaction, the combined company will be named Quanergy Systems, Inc. and is expected to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the ticker symbol “QNGY.” The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2021, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
QORTEX DTC™ is a core proprietary computer vision software platform compatible with Quanergy’s suite of LiDAR sensors. The flexible, scalable platform uses 3D perception algorithms to enable an entirely new level of smart awareness across various industries and applications including security, smart cities, and industrial automation. The multiple new features of QORTEX DTC 2.2 include advanced vehicle classification capabilities, increased cybersecurity, and improved usability.
Vehicle Sub-Classification. The 2.2 version offers advanced classification types for vehicles, based on US DoT vehicles classes and now supports 2-wheeler (class 1), passenger vehicle (class 2 and 3), and commercial vehicles (class 4 and above). This allows a smart city or smart highway to identify a moving vehicle type opening up very effective traffic optimization strategies.
Increased Cybersecurity. QORTEX DTC 2.2 adds authentication and encryption to the QORTEX Server to prevent unauthorized access to QORTEX data.
Time-Based PTZ Rules and PTZ Time Switching. QORTEX DTC 2.2 now allows users to specify a time period a rule is on for (i.e., during business hours, after business hours, etc.). PTZ time switching allows a PTZ camera to time switch between multiple objects when a tracking rule is triggered.
Usability Settings. QORTEX DTC 2.2 includes a set of new features designed to make it easier for users to fine-tune parameters to their unique applications. The new release features a new Basic Settings tab that includes the most common parameters with user-friendly definitions to aid parameter selection.
Glass & Window Reflection. The 2.2 version improves detection accuracy by removing false objects which result from glass and window reflections.
Long-standing customer QuantumLABS spoke to the added value of the new features. “QORTEX DTC has been invaluable in delivering insights to our security customers over the years,” said Mark O’Reilly, Head of Innovation at QuantumLABS, “Now, the enhanced cybersecurity and addition of user logs provide another layer of protection for our customer base. Plus, the automated ID handover functionality has made it easier to deploy seamless security solutions that anonymously track individuals throughout large facilities.”
