Photobears: LIDAR Industry Seminar: Photonic technologies for LIDAR sensors in autonomous and ADAS applications

September 1, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

- Free

From fleets to commercial vehicles there are a growing number of new and existing technologies that are important for the development of a fully autonomous vehicle. Aside from traditional sensors such as cameras ultrasonic and radar LIDAR technologies are becoming the key enabler in the fusion of sensors needed to achieve higher levels of autonomous control (levels 4/5). Today there are already multiple designs of LIDAR systems whose key components are photonic devices such as light sources photodetectors and MEMS mirrors. This presentation will provide an overview of the tradeoffs for LIDAR vs. competing sensor technologies (camera radar and ultrasonic) that re-enforce the need for sensor fusion as well as summarize and compare various mechanical and solid state LIDAR designs. Guidelines for selecting photonic components such as photodetectors light sources and MEMS mirrors will also be discussed.Speaker: Jake Li Hamamatsu
