Modeling Flash Lidar in OpticStudio, Part 1: Lidar Component Setup in Sequential Mode
In the consumer electronics space, engineers leverage lidar for several functions, such as facial recognition and 3D mapping. While vastly different embodiments of lidar systems exist, a flash lidar solution generates an array of detectable points across a target scene using solid-state optical elements. This technology enables compact packaging, and it has allowed detailed spatial data acquisition to be more commonplace in consumer products, like smart phones and tablets. In part one of this webinar series, we will explore how to use OpticStudio’s Sequential Mode to setup and characterize the transmitting and receiving modules of a flash lidar system.
