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…
Eye safety (and general biological safety) is of paramount importance when designing any laser-based system.
But, as with many other aspects of design, ensuring eye safety isn’t a simple or linear process. To the contrary, there are a number of factors to be considered, many of them appearing to be contradictory. And that’s why it’s best to consider this response before designing a LiDAR sensor, and then work back from there, determining the parameters which may have the greatest effect.
