LiDAR rules the machine perception space!!

LiDAR rules the machine perception space!!

Philip Constantine
Many machines need to be aware of the objects and spaces around them. This might be to detect when something arrives or leaves, to measure how high something is or to see how far away an obstacle is. It is the position of things relative to the machine that affects the decisions that the machine must make. Human centric visual characteristics are not important to a machine. It is the pure logical concepts of presence, absence and position that determine what actions must be taken. This is where lidar excels as it clearly identifies objects and can measure the spaces between them.

Here’s a riddle: what gets lost every time you gain? The answer? Electrons and photons – when you’re converting electricity, that is.

We’ve been busy! In our quest to make your drone’s job easier so that you can get better results, we’ve developed two great new models; each offering an exciting range of possibilities.

For a start, there’s our SF000, the world’s smallest, lightest microLiDAR. Next up, there’s LightWare’s SF45.

The Science of LiDAR & Light Amplification

Even the least scientifically-minded people have at least some idea of amplification, thanks to the amps most of us have tucked away in the lounge. That said, turning a small sound into a larger one is rather a different matter to amplifying light.
