LIDAR - A radar system to make autonomous driving safer, measured by UV-Vis

LiDAR, an abbreviation for Light Detection and Ranging, is one type of optical sensor technology. The distance and angle to a remote measurement object and its nature can be measured by scanning laser light on the measurement object and measuring the scattered light and reflected light. LiDAR systems have already been installed in aircraft and satellites and used as a ranging technology for research in geology, seismology, and other fields. Recently, LiDAR has also attracted attention as a technology for use in self-driving automobiles.

Because LiDAR is used in place of a human driver in automated driving, the LiDAR system must operate the vehicle appropriately based on detection of traffic signals, the road width, oncoming vehicles, pedestrians, and other conditions. LiDAR is extremely important as a technology for sensing objects that may become obstructions during driving, and thus is a key technology for realizing automated driving.
