An introduction to automotive light detection and
ranging (LIDAR) and solutions to serve future
autonomous driving systems.

LIDAR – sometimes called time of flight (ToF), laser scanners or laser radar – is a sensing
method that detects objects and maps their distances. The technology works by illuminating
a target with an optical pulse and measuring the characteristics of the reflected return signal.
The width of the optical pulse can range from a few nanoseconds to several microseconds …more
