LiDAR1: Driving Forward: Enabling Smart Machines of Tomorrow
The challenges with designing sensors for the burgeoning autonomous driving market is that the ability to balance sleek design, with performance and power – all at an affordable price point. This session explores the design process in developing LiDAR sensors that are precision optical mechanical devices capable of extremely high-resolution imaging even at distances of up to 300 meters. Specifically, it addresses the key advantages of our LiDAR technology including high resolution imaging, long range, energy-efficiency, low cost and small form factor.
