Modeling Flash Lidar in OpticStudio, Part 2: Lidar Simulation in Non-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 two of this webinar series, we will cover the conversion of our sequential starting points from part one and incorporate additional detail into the non-sequential model. We also apply the ZOS-API to generate time-of-flight results with our flash lidar system.
