Performance metrics matter because they ultimately determine how designers and engineers approach problem-solving. In Part 2 of the series, "Deconstructing Two Conventional LiDAR Metrics," AEye proposes two updated metrics for measuring the performance of automotive LiDAR systems: object classification range and time to true velocity.
Conventional metrics (such as frame rate and resolution) used for evaluating LiDAR systems don’t adequately or explicitly address real-world problems facing autonomous driving. Therefore, AEye proposes a new, more salient, set of corresponding metrics for evaluation: object revisit rate and instantaneous resolution.
Based off of their findings, VSI Labs determined that AEye's iDAR system "can detect and potentially classify objects with enough precision, accuracy, and distance not possible with conventional LiDAR or camera sensors."
The artificial intelligence that drives autonomous vehicles will require artificial perception that is modeled after the greatest perception engine on the planet — the human visual cortex.
AEye has a perspective that we hope the industry will adopt more widely, which is to use biomimicry to focus energy on things that matter.
Autonomous vehicles will spark a radical shift in our society. Not only will it make safer and more efficient public transportation accessible to the masses, it will allow us to have the time to accomplish meaningful tasks which would otherwise be lost to a long commute. Engineers are the leaders in bringing about this societal change.
For the better part of 25 years, I have worked at the intersection of transportation and technology. Starting as a powertrain engineer at Ford Motor Company, and through executive tenures at Flexcar, Zipcar and Silvercar, I have seen the industry begin the most profound, tectonic shift in its 120 year history.
AEye values integrity, innovation, and a dedication to change the world by bringing sensible, problem-solving ADAS and Mobility perception solutions to market. Will you join us in building a safer future?
Introducing 1KM AEye has set a new benchmark for LiDAR range. In performance specification tests monitored and validated by VSI Labs, AEye’s iDAR system acquired and tracked a truck at 1,000 meters – or one kilometer – five times the distance current LiDAR systems are able to detect! Watch now...
