SPONSORED White Paper: Anatomy of a Breakthrough Technology
This white paper talks about a new, unique LED-based sensing technology as well as how it works, the scientific principles behind it, and the beam patterns it uses to offer effective detection and distance measurement.
Contrary to collimated emitters (lasers), the Leddar sensor’s LEDs and emitter optics are used to create a diffused beam covering a wider area of interest. The receiver collects the backscatter of the reflected light from objects in the beam and, using full-waveform analysis, detects the presence of objects in each segment of the beam, measuring the distance of the detected objects (based on the time taken by the light to return to the sensor). Accumulation and oversampling techniques are used to maximize range, accuracy and precision.
