Most of nowadays LIDAR sensors either uses rotating mirror or rotating sensor head. Mechanical parts require high precision and are more difficult to build than purely electronic devices. Thus, LIDAR sensors are more expensive when compared to e.g. radar-on-a-chip, in most cases beyond wide commercial use.
NEXT has no moving parts. It is small, robust, purely electronic and optics FLASH LIDAR sensor with excellent range, resolution and FOV. Moreover, NEXT can be easily adapted to fulfil many roles needed for ADAS sensors – be it extreme-range narrow beam sensor for frontal detection on highway or vide FOV, mid range side or near surrounding sensor.
NEXT will be available very soon. Stay tuned or contact us for more information.
