Digital vs Analog Lidar

Digital lidar sensors and analog lidar sensors may look similar on the exterior, but inside the two technologies are fundamentally different approaches, with big implications for cost, reliability, resolution, and headroom for future performance improvement. Join us to learn about these differences, and why digital technology is the future of lidar.

Webinar series: How to understand lidar performance

Digging into the datasheets to compare different lidar sensors can be frustrating and confusing. How do you get an apples-to-apples comparison? What tradeoffs exist between specs? Is everything being measured the same way?

Part 1:

Resolution and Frame Rate

Explore a lidar sensor datasheet and explain what the different specs mean—highlighting frame rate and resolution. We'll explain how we measure these specs and what tradeoffs you may see between the specs, and why they matter for different lidar applications. Then we break down a point cloud and show how you can observe the specs in the data itself.

Part 2:

Range, Precision, and Accuracy

Join us as we walk through how range and precision are measured for our lidar sensors and explain how they are affected by different architecture choices, lighting conditions, and target types. We'll dig into the physics of what causes these impacts and how you can understand range and precision for all lidar sensors.

Part 3:

Reliability and Ruggedness

Reliability matters. Sensors failing on the job are both costly and a potential safety risk. Join us to take a look at how to better understand reliability metrics, get an overview of key standards, and learn how to think about the hidden costs of sensor replacements.
