Abstract

A STUDY ON LIDAR SYSTEMS: STRUCTURAL FRAMEWORK, FUNCTIONING, APPLICATIONS WITH A SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES

*Garv Pundir

ABSTRACT

Ever since the invention of the laser in 1960, LIDAR has made a path- breaking progress. More and more LIDAR technologies have been developed over these last 60 years or so. This study highlights the application of LIDAR technology to industries including construction, automotive, military operations, farming, forestry and oceanography. It discusses the structural framework around which the LIDAR is built and the technologies that it uses to function. The study discusses the importance of LIDAR to autonomous and semi- autonomous vehicles. However, the cost effectiveness of these sensors needs to be established. There is also discussion about more and more companies coming up with a combination of VCSEL lasers and SPAD detectors which are popular due to their ease on design complexity and cost. However, they may only thrive if they are able to improve their efficiency in terms of range. The study covers the challenges and opportunities faced by LIDAR technology along with tools to curb them. These will help to protect customers’ data privacy and lead to new product development in the future. The entire study has been conducted while keeping in mind the fast- paced growth and market projections over the next couple of years.
