As manufacturers continue to push the boundaries of vehicle automation, and move towards semi-driverless and even fully driverless vehicles, additional sensing capabilities are required to ensure that automated systems can detect, analyse and navigate every possible traffic scenario – no matter the complexity. This is where LiDAR comes in.
The technology itself is not new, but it’s only been quite recently that LiDAR has been deployed by car manufacturers, as the sensors become more affordable, and the need for their highly-accurate detection characteristics increases.
In the latest addition to our Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) Essentials training course, you will be introduced to LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology.
The topics covered in this training module include:
- The basic operating principles of LiDAR technology
- The different types of LiDAR sensors used in the automotive space
- The pros and cons of the variants of LiDAR sensors
As this technology becomes more and more commonplace it is vital that every modern technician understands how these advanced sensors operate and are prepared to work on them.
This module is the latest addition to our growing library of over 350 technical training videos, covering the following key areas:
Electrical | Engine | Chassis | Drivetrain | Driver Assist
HVAC | Diagnostics | Servicing | Hybrid & Electric Vehicles
