3D-sensing has many applications in consumer markets (gesture and facial recognition, gaming, AR/VR to note a few) and in automotive markets, specifically for LIDAR and other advanced driver-assistance systems. Recent years have seen initial volume deployments in several of these segments, concurrently driving significant unit volumes for optical components and related hardware. This panel will discuss how these new applications are shaping the optics industry. Is there an opportunity for technical differentiation or is it mostly about execution and investment capital? Will 3D-sensing provide cost benefits to the core optics business?
