Customers worldwide have chosen Quanergy’s M-Series as the LIDAR sensor delivering the best price/performance in the industry.

M-Series LiDARs provide the most precise representation of the 3D world by generating a high-accuracy, high-resolution and extremely dense point cloud of scanned areas and objects. It allows UAVs to operate at their maximum altitude, accurate raw material volumetric assessment for mining, and fast geometric readout for high throughput inspection.

M-Series high data density 3D mapping technology is designed to help mapping integrators and operators improve their productivity and generate faster revenue by increasing the mapping accuracy and speed across a variety of applications including urban planning, maintenance of critical infrastructure, land surveying, power line inspection, archeological excavation, and more.


Quanergy’s 3D LiDAR portfolio is designed to increase the efficiency and safety within industries such as mining, agriculture, and logistics by optimizing critical processes supporting automation of warehouses, ports and other industrial facilities.

The Quanergy portfolio is built on the high-precision M-Series and the S-Series LiDARs, the industry’s only 100% CMOS solid state sensor which is immune to vibration. It enables navigation and collision avoidance for automated guided vehicles (AGV), unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), mobile robots, and forklifts, and protects individuals within industrial areas. Thanks to their unique design, Quanergy’s LiDAR sensors offer industry leading reliability backed by a unique 2-year warranty.

“I strongly believe that Quanergy’s product range including the M and S LiDAR sensor series bring a new, high-quality and innovative LiDAR solution to both the geo-mapping and industrial automation sectors,” said Steve Ansell, Managing Director of Sentek Solutions. “We are pleased to have signed this distribution agreement with Quanergy and are confident our customers will see the benefits of the multi-layer and solid state technology that the Quanergy team has developed to support a wide range of applications.”
