A Guide to Lasers for Robots (Part 2)

Keep in mind that sensor manufacturers are in direct competition with each other. This means specifications can sometimes be put on a slightly over-optimistic spin. For example, range specifications are sometimes measured using retro-reflective targets

How a "Wild Idea" About LiDAR Transformed the Aerial Mapping Industry

In 2012, Phoenix LiDAR CEO Grayson Omans had the revolutionary idea to mount a Velodyne LiDAR sensor on a UAV-and he transformed the aerial mapping industry in the process.

LiDAR 101: A Q&A with a Pictometry Expert

Because LiDAR uses light, the target must be visible, so it is not an all-weather solution. It wont work well in fog or other weather conditions that affect visibility, but if conditions are clear, it can operate during both day and night.

Analog Devices Acquires Laser Beam Steering Technology from Vescent Photonics to Enable Mainstream Adoption of Automotive LIDAR Systems

This acquisition strengthens ADIs position as a major automotive safety system technology partner for next generation ADAS and autonomous driving applications and builds on ADIs 20-year history in advancing automotive safety.

Low-cost, LiDAR-based Navigation for Mobile Robotics

Using the ROS Navigation suite from the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF), we highlight a solution employing the Rhoeby Dynamics R2D LiDAR, a low-cost LiDAR device
