LIDAR is a key pillar of Analog Devices’ holistic Drive360™ Autonomous Driving Solutions strategy. LIDAR utilizes pulses of light to translate the physical world into 3D digital images in real time with a high level of confidence. Traditional LIDAR systems—found primarily today on test vehicles—are expensive. In addition to this, they can be unsightly and consist of mechanical components which can lead to system downtime. Analog Devices is investing heavily in truly non-mechanical and cost-effective LIDAR technologies to facilitate the mainstream adoption of Automotive LIDAR Systems and enable automotive suppliers and OEMs to deploy LIDAR-based ADAS and Autonomous driving applications in passenger vehicles.
