First Sensor, one of the leading companies in the world in the field of sensor technologies has unveiled a white paper titled, “Making sense of sensors: A LiDAR designer’s guide to sensor technologies for automotive/mobility systems.” The new white paper details the most important criteria that need to be considered when selecting the best sensor technology, and goes on to detail the benefits and disadvantages of each of the main sensor technologies.
LiDAR (Light detection and ranging) scanners are key components for the development of autonomous vehicles and even in widely used driver assist technologies like traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control (ACC), collision avoidance systems, blind spot detection, and lane departure warning. All these systems which can make a tremendous difference in terms of road safety use are LiDAR-based systems and need sensors which function as the “eyes” of the system to function.
Innovations to LiDAR and other mobility technologies are being made at a rapid pace and hence it is difficult for design engineers for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of mobility LiDAR systems to choose the most suitable sensor technology which best matches their requirements. This is a critical task as making the right sensor choices clearly marks the path ahead.
First Sensor’s new white paper will serve as an excellent guide for systems designers who need to make such critical choices. The paper gives a concise summary of the background on mobility LiDAR system technology, a discussion of the vital requirements that need to be kept in mind for selecting the best sensor technology, details of the pros and cons of each of the leading options, and an overview of what is needed when evaluating the right provider partner.
