CNI Lasers for LiDAR Applications

Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) is a method of measuring distance, by irradiating a target with a pulse laser and then measuring the reflected pulse with a sensor. Different laser return time and wavelength can be used to make a digital 3D representation of the target. LiDAR is sometimes called 3D laser scanning, which is a … Continue reading
