Integrated Photonics for the next generation of autonomous Vehicles using InP technologies

Project description

Steering photonics to new heights in the automotive industry

Photonics – which deals with generating, guiding, manipulating, amplifying and detecting light – is now a key enabling technology for many innovations. Lasers, optical fibres, cameras in our phones, LED lighting in our cars, homes, computer screens and TVs are just a few examples. For the EU-funded DRIVE-In project, the focus is on driving innovation in the automotive industry and the next generation of autonomous vehicles. The project will work synergistically to generate a cohort of four early-stage scientists with advanced inter-disciplinary skills in hybrid optoelectronic circuit designs as well as software simulation and modelling of indium phosphide-(InP)-based photonic integrated circuits. They will receive training at two leading European academic institutions and three industrial companies.
