Outsight Selected as Innov’up Sport Laureate for Advancing People Flow Understanding at Olympic Venues

We have been awarded the Innov’Up Sport award at VivaTech 2024 for the Olympic LiDAR project!

This prestigious award, presented by the Île-de-France region, celebrates Outsight's innovative contributions to enhancing people flow monitoring, security and privacy at large-scale sporting events, particularly the upcoming 2024 Paris Olympics.

As France prepares to host numerous high-profile sporting events, culminating in the 2024 Olympics, the demand on its infrastructure to provide smart people flow monitoring, as well as secure, efficient, and technologically advanced environments for spectators has never been greater.

Lidar software accurately showing each persons' while remaining anonymous
The position of each visitor is known precisely, but they remain completely anonymous.

With its Spatial AI and LiDAR technology solutions being deployed across four continents, this latest recognition cements Outsight’s position as the leading innovator in the Spatial Intelligence domain.

How does Lidar work? (in detail)
3D LiDAR is a complex technology that enables unprecedented Spatial Intelligence. Many engineering choices are possible when building a new device.

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a remote sensing technology that uses laser light to measure distances and create detailed 3D maps of environments.

Unlike cameras, LiDAR does not capture images or personal identifiers, making it a natively anonymous solution.

It accurately detects and tracks objects and people without recording facial features or other sensitive information, ensuring privacy while providing precise Spatial Intelligence.

Outsight's award-winning "Olympic LiDAR" project leverages their Spatial Intelligence Platform to offer unmatched privacy-focused people flow monitoring and security solutions.

People Flow Monitoring 2.0: How LiDAR solutions outperform other technologies
LiDAR solutions’ accuracy and versatility make them a superior solution and will undoubtedly lead to improved safety and efficiency in high-traffic areas.

Unlike traditional camera systems, LiDAR technology from Outsight ensures complete anonymity by tracking the position of individuals without capturing any personally identifiable information.

This makes it an ideal choice for privacy-conscious applications, offering superior perception in all lighting and weather conditions.

Meet the 3rd Generation of People Counting Technology
Mirroring the technological evolution seen across various industries, People Tracking and Counting Technologies have already entered their third generation.

With seamless integration capabilities, Outsight's software is compatible with any LiDAR sensor from various manufacturers, transforming raw data into actionable insights. This allows for precise tracking and management of people and vehicles in complex environments like stadiums, tourism sites, transportation hubs, and parking areas.

Outsight’s Spatial Intelligence Platform enhances operational efficiency, crowd management, and safety by providing real-time, anonymous tracking and a comprehensive overview of movements and interactions.

Outsight's technology empowers stadium personnel with real-time data, enabling them to monitor and manage spectator flows efficiently and in a fully anonymous manner.

Detailed and accurate KPIs for different zones of interest on one dashboard

The system generates detailed KPIs for various zones, allowing operators to anticipate and respond to changing demands swiftly. 

Raul Bravo, Founder-President of Outsight, said,

"For the first time, there is an alternative to capturing images with cameras, using 3D LiDAR sensors that only capture anonymous laser points. Unlike the situation two years ago, these sensors are now price-competitive and highly performant."
"This award recognizes not only the maturity of this technology, which we're already deploying at scale in many markets, but also its significant interest for sports venues that must ensure a precise understanding of people flow for better operations, visitor experience, and safety."

This award follows many others:
