Leti: Pilot Program to Characterize Lidar Sensors


LONDON , Jul. 18, 2018 – 

Leti, the France-based research institute, and its micro and nano-electronics center IRT Nanoelec, have announced a pilot program with public transport and mobility services company Transdev to characterize and assess lidar sensors for their performance and safety in autonomous vehicles under real-world conditions and to create standardized benchmarks that the industry can use.

In the pilot program, Leti teams will focus on perception requirements and challenges from a lidar system perspective and evaluate a number of commercially available sensors in real-world conditions. Vehicles will be exposed to objects with varying reflectivity, such as tires and street signs, as well as environmental conditions, such as weather, available light and fog. In addition to evaluating the sensors' performance, the project will produce a list of criteria and objective parameters by which various commercial lidar systems could be evaluated.

Marie-Sophie Masselot, a business development manager at Leti, told EE Times, "The sensors will be chosen so as to represent different lidar architectures. As one can expect, sensor behavior strongly depends on the sensor architecture (sources, detectors, scanning method). The aim of this program is to understand the behavior at system level under different real conditions and regarding a set of common representative properties.
