Intelligent LiDAR Software Technology for autonomous Vehicles
The integration of cutting-edge LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology is pivotal for autonomous vehicles, spanning driverless cars to automated ground vehicles in digital factories.
LiDAR, a laser-based sensor, offers wide-angle visibility, surpassing the capabilities of cameras and radar. It operates in one, two, and three dimensions, providing crucial distance and positional data. LiDAR's ability to detect objects at long ranges influences Safety features in vehicles, with sensor fusion using radar and cameras. Advanced LiDAR systems, such as Time-of-Flight (ToF) LiDAR, can detect objects over 200m away.
The growing demand for sophisticated Safety-critical embedded software, including real-time operating systems like PikeOS, underscores the evolution toward safer, more secure autonomous vehicles and industrial Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV).
