Medical Implants, Autonomous Vehicles, and LiDAR Set to Drive Voxel Integration2020-02-19
voxel is the three-dimensional counterpart of the pixel, which is used to denote any point in two-dimensional space. Voxels also add depth perspective to pixels, with the addition of the third dimension. Worldwide, the demand for voxel integration is increasing in 3D printing and imaging applications due to the increased sophistication and refinement it brings in the construction of 3D scans and imaging. The growing demand for 3D printing from various end use sectors is likely to drive the demand for voxel-pixel integration in the coming years. Medical devices and implants One of the most important users of 3D printing in modern times is the medical devices and implants sector. Medical implants made for specific applications need to adhere to the intended structure, delivering precise measurements and engineering. The absence of precision in these medical devices can cause significant problems for medical practitioners. Long-term complications can arise if dental or bone implants are not of the correct shape. This has driven the demand for 3D printing in the medical devices and implants sector. The growing geriatric population, leading to a growing demand for medical implants, is likely to be the major driver for 3D printing in medical devices. This is likely to drive the demand for voxel-pixel integration. Automotive design and manufacturing The automotive industry also uses 3D printing widely to manufacture a number of components, which can be improved if made by 3D printing rather than manual production. The growing demand for lightweight materials in the automotive industry has also been crucial for the growing demand for 3D printing, as this has driven the demand for a number of polymers, which are highly suited for 3D printing. 3D printing and voxel integration has also made it easy to construct intricate, detailed parts, as even complicated structures can be easily manufactured with 3D printers. LiDAR, Autonomous vehicles, and surveillance Voxel integration has also emerged as an important factor in the development of LiDAR, autonomous vehicles, and surveillance, as all three of these technologies depend on reliable 3D mapping of the world around them. The increasing precision of mapping brought about voxel integration is a key difference maker for these industries. Growing investment in autonomous vehicles is thus likely to be a major driver for voxel integration. Increasing government support to the development of effective LiDAR and surveillance capabilities is also likely to drive voxel integration in the coming years.
