AEye Redefines the Three “Rs” of LiDAR – Rate, Resolution, and Range

Pleasanton, CA – July 18, 2019 - In a new white paper released today, artificial perception pioneer AEye proposes newly extended metrics for evaluating advanced LiDAR system performance. Industry leaders recognize that the conventional metrics of frame rate, angular resolution, and detection range currently used for evaluating LiDAR performance no longer alone adequately measure the effectiveness of sensors to solve real world use cases that underlie autonomous driving. In response, AEye has proposed three new extended metrics for LiDAR evaluation:…

Rethinking the Three “Rs” of LiDAR: Rate, Resolution and Range

Conventional metrics used for evaluating the performance of LiDAR for autonomous vehicles (such as frame rate, full frame resolution, and detection range) do not sufficiently address the challenges facing autonomous driving. In response, AEye proposes three new metrics for extending LiDAR evaluation, such as: extending the metric of frame rate to include intra-frame object revisit rate; expanding resolution to capture instantaneous enhanced resolution; and enhancing detection range to reflect the more critically important object classification range.

iDAR Sees Only What Matters

Only iDAR brings intelligence to the sensor layer. By fusing 1550 nanometer, solid-state agile LiDAR with a low-light HD camera, CV algorithms, and embedded AI - at the sensor - iDAR filters out the most important aspects of a given scene. With iDAR, the vehicle’s perception system can target only the salient 5% of data it needs to safely navigate. Watch how.

AEye Advisory Board Profile: Adrian Kaehler

I was part of the microprocessor design team at Intel in the early 2000s. For the second Grand Challenge, Stanford University teamed up with Intel and VW to build the winning car: Stanley. I got involved in the project and, ultimately, in AVs, because I felt that the Grand Challenge was cool and interesting, and a clever and effective way to develop AV technology.
