LiDAR System Covers 360° Around Vehicle

By  | September 15, 2017 | Filed under: Float Switch, Level Sensors, Wireless Sensors

Robotic vision company AEye has completed a successful live metropolitan demo of its solid-state commercial LiDAR system with 360° vehicle coverage. The system employs a dense 150-vertical-channel LiDAR scanner, paired with region-of-interest configurability for ranges up to 300m.  According to AEye, this is the market’s first commercial solid state system capable of 360° coverage and real-time software configurability.

 

What It Is & How It Works

 

The system architecture is highly integrated and employs algorithms to emulate how the visual cortex pre-processes and customizes information sent to the brain. The system essentially combines computer vision and 1,550-nm band LiDAR for intelligent data collection, rapid perception, and motion planning. Having a visual cortex behind the eyes of the vehicle improves reliability, lowers power requirements, and reduces median system bandwidth requirements.

Software-configurable hardware works in conjunction with control-system software to selectively customize data collection in real-time. Simultaneously, optional edge processing reduces control-loop latency. Additionally, the system relies on a MEMS-based design for rapid development, customization, and cost-effective manufacturing at scale.

AEye is currently testing its system with large transportation and heavy industry OEMs and conducting demonstrations with mobility and supply chain partners. Phased commercial rollouts are planned throughout 2017 and 2018. For more information or to schedule a demo, contact AEye.
