At Sensors Expo in San Jose, Innovusion (Los Altos, CA) debuted the Cheetah high-resolution, image-grade LiDAR system with long-distance capability. Based on rotating polygon optical architecture, the system combines proprietary detector electronics, advanced optics, and software algorithms to provide a detection range of 200 meters on objects with 10% reflectivity, and the ability to clearly detect objects out to 280 meters.
The picture-like imaging is achieved through a high number of vertical and horizontal scanning lines covering the entire field of view. Every object is represented by an exceptionally dense point cloud.
Said Innovusion CEO Dr. Junwei Bao, "We knew early on in order to build the safest mobility system possible, we needed to utilize 1550-nm laser combined with a large aperture polygon to achieve the best possible distance and resolution, thus maximizing reliability and safety."
