Opsys Tech’s Scanning Microflash Lidar is truly solid-state. That means it has no moving parts, not even liquid. And that makes it highly durable.
“We have the only scanning lidar with no moving parts,” Opsys Tech Executive Chairman Eitan Gertel said. “We’re able to accomplish that by using all semiconductor-based components.”
Using its semiconductor-based vertical cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSEL) and single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) chips, Opsys is able to scan a field of view with no moving parts.
It scans by turning thousands of tiny lasers on each transmitter on-and-off in rapid succession. Each laser is fixed at a specific angle, checking for objects as far as 200 meters away. Each laser is matched with a fixed receiver. Each receiver knows how far away an object in the distance is by how quickly the laser light is returned from its paired transmitter.
Using this system, each transmitter scans the full field of view at 1,000 frames per second. That’s more data than humans can use, so Opsys Tech averages the data collected down to 30 frames per second, which allows Opsys Tech lidar to eliminate errors caused by such issues as sunlight, reflection and glare.
High durability means high product confidence, an obvious necessity in the driver-assist and self-driving auto systems market.
With resolution and range that match or beat all existing lidar competitors paired with the unmatched reliability of its true solid-state construction, Opsys Tech is poised to disrupt and displace other lidar manufacturers.
Benefits of Opsys Tech Scanning Microflash Lidar:
Pure solid state (no moving parts) means high durability
200-meter range (surpasses flash lidar's 50-meter range while maintaining eye safety)
Scans full field of view at 1,000 frames per second
System averages inputs to operate on 30 frames per second (Averaging inputs eliminates errors caused by interference)
Customizable, multi-wavelength system (this allows clients to customize the field of view to their needs by integrated multiple units without creating interference between transmitters)
Low-cost (silicon semiconductor-based VCSEL lasers and SPAD receivers)
