Machine Learning Technique Can Rebuild Images That Go Through Multimode Fibers
Machine Learning Technique Can Rebuild Images That Go Through Multimode Fibers
Using a deep neural network (DNN) that imitates the way the brain processes images, researchers reconstructed images transmitted over multimode optical fibers at distances of up to 1 km. The DNN was trained to recognize certain images (in this case, handwritten digits) until it was able to recognize other images that were from the same category.

Lensless Cameras May Offer Detailed Imaging of Neural Circuitry
Lensless Cameras May Offer Detailed Imaging of Neural Circuitry
Lensless imagers do not rely on lenses to form the image. Instead, a single thin optical element is placed between the sample and the sensor. The optic is designed such that each point within the volume casts a unique and identifiable pattern.

Green Light on Lidar: Developing Low-Cost Systems for Autonomous Vehicles
Green Light on Lidar: Developing Low-Cost Systems for Autonomous Vehicles
Wed, Oct 3, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
For driverless cars to see mainstream adoption, engineers must solve critical lidar design challenges. This webinar will discuss the factors critical in accelerating the development of lidar, including the need to be able to quickly try out and identify new solutions; incorporate manufacturing and assembly limits into design constraints to ensure manufacturability; and simulate the impact of mechanical designs on optical performance. With tools that provide these abilities, teams can reduce development time and lower costs to win the race for autonomous vehicle market share.
