Autonomous Driving Through Remote Sensing and Imaging
Solid-state beam steering can provide automotive optical sensors, such as lidar, with improved field of view, range, and resolution
Steering Illumination and Detection Paths for Narrowband Optical Sensors
Automotive sensing increasingly relies on the rich spatial information available from cameras and lidars. Liquid crystal polarization gratings (LCPGs) can steer both illumination and detection paths for narrowband optical sensors — without any moving parts. Additionally, LCPGs are one of the only non-mechanical steering technologies capable of steering large apertures. In automotive sensing, this enables steering of the large receiver apertures required for long-range detection of weak signals.
The automotive sector is an exciting challenge due to the demands on performance, robustness, and price. We’re proving that our non-mechanical steering technologies are up to that challenge.
