Silicon photonics lidar raises 3D imaging performance

Researchers in Southampton, UK and San Francisco have developed a lidar sensor that could pave the way for low-cost, high-performance 3D imaging

InGaAs and event-based sensors still rely on silicon CMOS readout ICs

Sense of purpose

Greg Blackman explores the work being done on InGaAs sensors, along with other types of novel sensor that could find their way into the machine vision market

EPIC meeting on lidar

Attendees will participate on a discussion focused on the components and assembly processes needed to satisfy current user-driven demands in application fields including automotive, mapping, Earth observation, and security.
