Virtual Prototypes Speed Time to Market for Solid-State Lidar


Lidar is one of the most important optical technologies in the race toward mainstream self-driving cars. Most of the innovation of lidar systems in the automotive industry is focused on creating solid-state systems and reducing the movement of the mechanism that scans the laser beam across the field of view.


  • The latest designs for solid-state lidar, including a phased array
  • The intricacies of designing solid-state lidar systems, including field of view, range, and eye safety
  • Using virtual prototypes to predict the as-built behavior and balance performance with cost
