Development of a Compact Scan Laser Radar 1999-01-1044
This paper relates to a distance detecting sensor, specifically a scan radar laser used for a vehicle distance warning system or an intelligent cruise control system. In developing the scan laser radar, we used a light-based scan-action system working via an electromagnetic actuator and ICs in place of the internal circuitry for substantial parts count reduction. The compact scan laser radar is smaller in size and lower in price with higher performance than its predecessors (1). This has made it possible to offer a lower-priced, compact, lightweight, and easy-to-install scan laser radar.
