Lidar technology strengthens current approaches to ADAS

Automakers are striving to develop advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) to prevent crashes, most of which are forward-facing and result from driver error – as discussed in Part I. Significant room for improvement exists, however, and the addition of a single, cost-effective directional lidar (light detection and ranging) sensor would contribute to the prevention of forward-facing crashes – as presented in Part II. The third and final installment provides practical insight into the use of lidar technology as the cornerstone of a real-world ADAS solution.

 

Lidar technologies provide immediate and accurate free-space detection and excellent object detection and localization. As a result, a driver-assistance system designed with a high-performance, forward-looking lidar (FLL) sensor would greatly improve vehicle performance and safety. The third installment of this multipart series provides practical insight into the use of lidar technology as the cornerstone of a real-world ADAS solution.
