Superfast light modulation and detection technology supports pioneering object recognition
LIDAR stands for light detection and ranging, a remote sensing method that uses a pulse of laser light to measure the distance to an object. Together with other data, it can generate precise 3D information about the object. Consisting of a scanner, a laser and a GPS receiver, LIDAR has been around for over 50 years but only recently shot to stardom with the advent of GPS systems. From improving maps of shorelines to assisting in emergency response operations to applications in the military, LIDAR is here to stay. i-LiDAR plans to ratchet up the scanning speed with state-of-the-art materials that generate ground-breaking electromagnetic and photonic phenomena. Superfast visual recognition enabling superfast reactions could benefit numerous civilian and military applications.
