12.06.23 -- LiDAR Filters: The Unsung Hero In Reaching Level 3 Autonomy


LiDAR Filters: The Unsung Hero In Reaching Level 3 Autonomy

Mercedes-Benz plans a limited launch of its Drive Pilot system in 2024, the first to market with a Level 3 autonomous driving system. LiDAR is playing an instrumental role in the progression to Level 3 autonomy, aided by the unsung hero: LiDAR filters.


Filter Specs Vs. Functional Specs – The Pitfall Of Double Margining

Wavelength “padding” can result in over- or under-margining of transmission/blocking wavelengths. This leads to a more expensive solution with compromised performance.

Optical Bandpass Filter Fundamentals

Bandpass filters offer precise control over transmitted light bands and rejection of unwanted radiation, with types and features playing crucial roles in their application and performance optimization.

Color Temperature Adjustment Filters For Technical Or Aesthetic Illumination

Color temperature adjustment filters modify light spectra for diverse applications like architecture, cinema, medical fields, and security, allowing precise control over color appearance.
