With the fast technology development, LiDAR sensor application becomes more innovative and has been found in many industries. LiDAR is widely used in urban planning, road construction, aerospace, and defense because of its excellent mapping and detection capabilities. The earliest use of LiDAR dates back to the 1970s when NASA applied it to space exploration. Airborne LiDARs only became popular in the 1980s and 1990s for the use of generating accurate topographic maps.
With the development of autonomous driving technology, automakers, and autonomous driving solution providers are paying more and more attention to the importance of LiDAR, because it can provide high-resolution, accurate, and comprehensive information, and its complementarity with other sensors, such as radar, cameras, etc. LiDAR occupies an increasingly important position in sensor equipment because of its unique technology, which provides reliable, efficient, and high-precision three-dimensional data.
Suzhou Neuvition Technology Co., Ltd. is a professional provider focusing on LiDAR innovative applications and technical service solutions, providing high-quality solid-state LiDAR sensors, LiDAR software services, and complete LiDAR sensor application solutions to global customers.
The product has an ultra-high resolution of 700 lines, an ultra-long effective detection distance of 600 meters, and leading video fusion technology. Neuvition has a wide range of product models, including high-end Titan M1 series products of MEMS+1550nm; Flash LiDAR product Titan S2 series based on pure solid-state LiDAR technology that meets the requirements of short-range detection and low-speed collision avoidance. With stable performance and high precision, the main LiDAR sensor applications of Neuvition products include autonomous driving, V2X, rail transit, 3D mapping, industrial machine vision, and other fields.
The main factors limiting the LiDAR sensor application include technology maturity, imagination, and price. With the breakthrough of LiDAR technology, the rapid development of the industry, and the cross-border application of LiDAR, LiDAR will become a low-cost, low-maintenance solution wherever it is necessary to obtain the trajectory data of people or vehicles. LiDAR accurate data can support decisions in many scenarios.
LiDAR can be described as important assistance in the field of autonomous driving. The laser beam can accurately measure the relative distance between the edge of the object’s contour and the driving cars in the field of view. This contour information forms a point cloud and draws a 3D environment map. The accuracy can reach the centimeter-level to ensure the measurement accuracy. LiDAR sensor application in autonomous driving includes unmanned positioning, drivable area detection, lane mark recognition, obstacle detection, dynamic object tracking, obstacle classification and recognition, etc.
LiDAR sensor application in ITS can improve traffic congestion and safety. Comprehensive data on intersections, roundabouts, roads, highways, parking lots, and toll gates can be provided to municipalities and government organizations. The data can help improve automated decision-making for key processes, improve road safety, improve transportation and shorten commute times.
LiDAR has strong anti-interference ability, accurate ranging, and long-distance detection ability, which can ensure the safety of railway operations. LiDAR has been used in more and more rail projects, mainly including foreign object intrusion detection, rail transit obstacle detection, urban railway system survey, foreign object detection of screen doors, terrain tunnel deformation detection, safety protection between platforms and trains.
LiDAR sensor application is a new method for high-efficiency and high-precision 3D measurement. Compared with traditional measurement methods, it is fast, low labor intensity, and highly accurate. The amount of data obtained by LiDAR scanning is large and the density of data points is high, which can fully reflect the surface characteristics of the object, so that the volume can be calculated quite accurately, to solve the surface approximation error that is difficult to solve by conventional measurement methods.
LiDAR sensor application is becoming more and more popular for smart cities, security, and other industries. Because LiDAR significantly reduces erroneous data, it can work 24 hours a day in most weather conditions, and the way to obtain data without biometric identification minimizes user privacy concerns. With the continuous technology development of software and hardware, more and more industries will pay attention to LiDAR applications.
