Lumotive, Gpixel Unveil Lidar Reference Design Platform

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Lumotive, developer of Light Control Metasurface (LCM) beam-steering chips, and Gpixel, a producer of high-end CMOS image sensor solutions, have made available the M30 Reference Design Platform in an effort to speed adoption of next-generation 3D lidar sensors for mobility and industrial applications, including autonomous navigation of robots in logistics environments.

Compared to traditional flash illumination solutions, lidar sensors based on LCM electronic beam steering carry advantages in outdoor range performance: They reduce multipath effects for better point cloud quality, optimize illumination across the field of view in high ambient light levels and for varying levels of reflectivity, and improve interference mitigation from other sensors, among other advantages.

The first version of the M30 Reference Design Platorm is currently being evaluated by a number of lidar systems developers, ToF camera makes, and industrial OEMs. The next generation of the platform with enhanced performance and optimized for volume manufacturing is expected to be available by mid-2023.

A device which operates under the processes of absorption and stimulated emission and by the condition that gain exceeds loss in order to sustain amplification. The term laser is the acronym for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The standard components of a laser include: 1.) a lasing material known as the gain medium. 2.) a pump source. 3.) laser cavity To achieve lasing, the atoms of a material such as crystal, glass, liquid, dye or gas are excited by...
An acronym of light detection and ranging, describing systems that use a light beam in place of conventional microwave beams for atmospheric monitoring, tracking and detection functions. Ladar, an acronym of laser detection and ranging, uses laser light for detection of speed, altitude, direction and range; it is often called laser radar.
