Photonic technologies for LIDAR in autonomous and ADAS applications
LIDAR technologies are becoming the key enabler in the fusion of sensors needed to achieve higher levels of autonomous control (levels 4/5).
- Analyse the attributes of the various mechanical and solid-state LIDAR designs now on the market to ascertain which system meet both you fiscal and operational needs
- Consider the trade-offs for LIDAR vs. competing sensor technologies (camera, radar, and ultrasonic) that re-enforce the need for sensor fusion
- Assess the guidelines for selecting photonic components such as photodetectors, light sources, and MEMS mirrors to ensure you have the optimal component suite in your LIDAR system
