Dr. Farzad Parsaie, founder of SAND Microsystems GmbH, Switzerland is teaching
this 5-day course on LiDAR Sensors.
LiDAR, that stands for Light Detection and Ranging or simply Light Radar, has already been known for decades and used in different areas as meteorology and space. Recently more attention and interest has been devoted to LiDAR to detect objects for plenty of new applications as autonomous driving (AD), advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), drones, robots, 3D Imaging and scanning, etc.
However, the conventional LiDAR instruments in use have been quite bulky and very expensive. This has strongly limited the usage of this sensor so far. Over 100 companies are working on the development of new LiDAR solutions that can be used for many product applications mentioned above.
This course enables Engineers and Managers to become familiar with different concepts that a LiDAR sensor can be realized from the top system level down to the transistor and device level. It is planned to raise the awareness of the participants about the challenges and the development issues of LiDAR by proposing several solutions that can help to minimize the development risks and time.
After introduction and comparison of architectures details of Electronic and Optoelectronic components and subsystems will be covered. Advanced techniques and technologies will be introduced that enable us to minimize the size and cost of LiDAR tremendously.
