A commercially successful lidar sensor must meet both the performance and SWaP-C2 (size, weight, power, cost and compliance) requirements. Using automotive and consumer applications as examples, we will explore the optoelectronic design trade-offs associated with different architecture and component choices. Interesting insights on Lumotive’s innovative and commercially scalable approach to lidar will be shared as well.
