Optical technology enhances conventional ADAS sensors
Lidar? Radar? Great, but not sufficient. Computational imaging company Light is entering the market of automotive sensor solutions with an optical-based perception platform that calculates distances and speeds from image data. According to the company, the system is able to see any 3D structures in the road from 10 centimeters to 1000 meters away. Which is about three times the distance of today’s best-in-class lidar systems.
vehicle needs to be equipped with comprehensive, measured depth alongside the type of visual information that cameras provide, in order to make smart decisions that make driving safer.” 

Built to work alongside and improve the performance of other sensing modalities, such as lidar and radar, the Clarity platform uses off-the-shelf, auto-grade cameras sourced from existing automotive supply chains, keeping costs low. Light’s algorithms can be easily updated to take advantage of new enhancements.
