The ibeo LUX lidar sensor scans the area around the sensor and uses lasers to detect any objects that are present in its field of view. The mirror inside the sensor constantly rotates, deflecting a laser beam to scan the environment and create a comprehensive image of the entire space in the laser's field of view. The scan data of the ibeo LUX comprise distance, angle, and echo pulse width. The ibeo LUX allows for detection of the environment in a field of view of 110 degrees and at a distance of up to 200 meters.
Another feature of the sensor is the synchronization of time with the moving mirror. The sensor’s internal time is aligned with an external reference time, while the mirror’s rotation frequency is adjusted by means of a periodic external signal to ensure a constant high degree of measurement accuracy.
Lidar (light detection and ranging) is a key technology of the future and the basis for highly automated processes and autonomous vehicles. The ibeo LUX sensor has a multitude of potential uses in the automotive sector, especially for automated driving: the sensor is equally suitable as an assistant for adaptive cruise control and as a pedestrian protection device. The wide range of possible applications results from its precise measurement irrespective of speed, weather conditions and traffic intensity.
There are three versions of the ibeo LUX lidar sensor: with four or eight scan levels and as a HD version with special software for use in dusty and damp environments.
