MENLO PARK, Calif. — Invisage Technologies Inc. has announced the Spark Micro-LiDAR SML20 module.
The previously announced Spark4K 13-MP, 1.1-µm NIR sensor enables the SML20 module to sense structured light patterns with high acuity at a range of 20 m, even in direct sunlight, allowing drones to self-navigate at a much higher speed. With a sensor module of 8.5 × 8.5 × 4.5 mm, the device is ultralight, compact and low power.
The SML20 is ideal for drones and other mobile autonomous devices that require a lighter, more power-efficient alternative to conventional lidar without the limitations of ultrasonic and stereo-camera depth sensing systems.
