Physics – the “secret sauce” behind LiDAR.  The Physics of LiDARs has not changed since the days of Albert Einstein - the fundamental rules of Quantum Mechanics, speed of light and several other primary aspects remain the same. The rules of Physics cannot be bent when it comes to LiDAR, we try… but we still cannot really bend them!

Optics, a small word, yet a powerful game changer in the world of LiDAR.

There are several elements in any machine or device that makes it work. People generally have this misconception that the laser, detector or signal processing unit is the most important component of a LiDAR…
