A LiDAR system’s integrated lasers emit light which is then reflected off objects, returned, recorded, and applied for autonomous vehicle control. While autonomous vehicles and smart city traffic controls demonstrate key arenas for LiDAR applications, the technology is highly applicable in other uses.
Robots moving or picking goods in industrial warehouses or unmanned aerial vehicles used for mapping topologies need to move quickly and safely without human intervention; drones used to deliver packages must be able to avoid buildings, people, power lines, and other drones. These systems analyse road condition information in real time, outputting multi-channel data based on the point in travel and target objects in the surrounding environment.
