President Kim Young-sam of Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI).
Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI) featured 10 technologies, including a scanning LiDAR (light detection and ranging) sensor for vehicles, during the Korea Tech Show 2018. The exhibition, titled “Industrial R&D for Your Tomorrow,” took place at COEX in Samseong-dong, Seoul, from Oct. 5 to 7.
KETI set up six independent booths to display the prominent technologies.
Among approximately 300 people on hand at an opening ceremony on Dec. 5 were Minister Sung Yun-mo of the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy; Chairman & President Seong Si-heon of the Korea Evaluation Institute of Industrial Technology (KEIT); KETI President Kim Young-sam; President Im Chun-taek of the Korea Institute of Energy Technology Evaluation and Planning (KETEP); President Kim Hak-do of the Korea Institute for Advancement of Technology (KIAT); and Baek Man-ki, head of the R&D Strategy & Planning Team.
The technologies unveiled by KETI at the Korea Tech Show 2018 included a scanning LiDAR sensor for vehicle, the interactive infotainment contents for vehicle, an interoperability solution of smart factories, big data analysis systems for consumer marketing services, technology for deep learning based on robotic bin-picking, noise reduction SoC using Beamformer technology, multimodal signal processing SoC using lightweight AI engines, smart level sensors, transparent heater materials technology with high-speed and high-temperature based on indium tin oxide nanoparticles (ITO-NPs) ink, and an integrated propulsion module for drones.
The scanning LiDAR sensor for vehicles is a technology that acquires a 3D spatial information by reflecting a light from an object using a high-power pulse laser.
KETI of Korea, Fraunhofer Research Institute of Germany, and CWC of the United States joined forces in the development of the interoperability solution of smart factory.

KETI collaborated with Fraunhofer Research Institute in the Smart Factory Web Project. The technology offers digital production development environment. It is a new concept smart factory designed to not only enhance manufacturing process efficiency and reduce default, but also control manufacturing tailored to meet needs.
A research team headed by senior researcher Kim Byung-soo of the SoC Platform developed the noise reduction SoC using Beamformer technology and the multimodal signal processing SoC using lightweight AI engine.
The multimodal signal processing SoC using a lightweight AI engine is a hardware technology enabling intelligent sensor signal management in a super small, low power device environment by offering situation recognition, inference and judgment through multi-modal data.
