LIDAR for Autonomous Cars to Satellites

October 20, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC

Today LIDAR sensors have become one of the most common sensors for 3D capture, thanks to autonomous cars, drones, and robots. All LIDAR sensors are not created equal, and they come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and prices too. Typically, the price and size increase with the increasing range and higher range resolution and range accuracy. All these sensor parameters vary depending upon the applications and their requirements. In this meeting, Dr. Yuan will discuss the fundamentals of LIDAR sensors and how the sensor components, laser, detector, optics, and electronics influence sensor parameters such as range, range resolution, and range accuracy. Furthermore, he will discuss flash LIDAR and scanning LIDAR technologies and their merits and limitations in different applications. Finally, he will discuss the design and requirements of LIDAR sensors for airborne and space applications. Speaker(s): Dr. Ping Yuan, Agenda: 6:30 PM: Food and Networking 7:00 PM: Presentation Bldg: Cal Lutheran Center for Entrepreneurship (Hub101), 31416 Agoura Rd, Westlake Village, California, United States, 91361, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/327349
