Many conventional LiDAR technologies are built on a coaxial design, where the optical path is shared by the transmitter and receiver. AEye has chosen a bistatic design, where the transmitter and receiver have separate paths, allowing for the optimization of each. In this session, AEye’s co-founder and VP of Corporate Development Jordan Greene will explain how this unique approach to smart data capture has resulted in the industry’s first intelligent and active LiDAR sensor system, which is able to select where to scan and capture the most salient, actionable data, for the drastically improved probability of detection and accuracy of classification.
