Technologists, and even Hollywood, have promised us autonomy for decades. While LiDAR is seen as a critical ingredient, its architecture has remained largely unchanged – based on a coaxial design that necessitates fixed scanning and treats all information the same. The problem is – automotive development models have changed, as have consumer expectations – and architectures must evolve to support changing requirements and demands. In this session, AEye co-founder and GM of ADAS Jordan Greene will discuss the rise of adaptive sensing, made possible by a bistatic architecture, and how it will enable agile development that maps to both the ADAS requirements of today and higher-level autonomy, as we imagined.
Jordan is responsible for defining and managing the ongoing execution of AEye’s strategic business goals with partners, investors, and internally. Jordan was formerly an Operating Partner at Tri-Valley Capital, an early-stage investment firm focused on fostering companies at the intersection of hardware, software, and data. He co-led investments into a number of enterprise software-enabled companies, including AEye, Deep Sentinel, Vivalnk, 4DS, and more. Prior to Tri-Valley Capital, Jordan was the co-founder and head of business development for VIRES Aeronautics, a startup focused on improving the aerodynamics of vehicles through new methods in mechanical design. A Forbes 30 Under 30, he received his Bachelor’s of Science at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley in addition to a Concentration in Engineering Leadership from the College of Engineering.
