  • Publication number: 20230251383
    Abstract: A LIDAR system including a MEMS scanning device is disclosed. The LIDAR system includes a light source, a light deflector, a sensor, and a processor. The light deflector deflects light from the light source or light received from an environment outside a vehicle in which the LIDAR system is installed. The sensor detects the light received from the light source or the environment. The processor determines a distance of one or more objects in the environment from the vehicle based on the signals from the sensor. The light deflector includes one or more actuators, which include one or more actuating arms. Connectors connect the actuating arms to an MEMS mirror or other deflector. The actuating arms move when subjected to an electrical field in the form of a voltage or current. Movement of the actuating arms causes movement of the MEMS mirror or deflector causing it to deflect light.

  • Patent number: 11609119
    Abstract: A handheld spectrometer can be configured with a visible aiming beam to allow the user to determine the measured region of the object. When the visible aiming beam comprises the spectrometer measurement beam, the spectrometer measurement beam comprises sufficient energy for the user to see the measurement beam illuminating the object. When the visible aiming beam comprises a separate beam, the visible aiming beam comprises sufficient energy for the user to see a portion of the aiming beam reflected from the object. The visible aiming beam and measurement beam can be arranged to at least partially overlap on the sample, such that the user has an indication of the area of the sample being measured.

  • Publication number: 20210389467
    Abstract: Systems and methods may detect an object within a minimum predetermined distance of a LIDAR system. The LIDAR system may comprise a processor configured to control a light source and a light deflector to illuminate objects located in a space illuminated by the light source; determine a distance to a first object based located within a field of view of a LIDAR sensor; receive, from a supplementary sensor, reflection signals indicative of light reflected from a second object outside the field of view; determine, based on the second reflection signals that the second object is located within a predetermined distance; and regulate, based on the determination, at least one of the light source and the light deflector to prevent an accumulated energy density of light emitted by the light source from exceeding a maximum permissible exposure level.

  • Publication number: 20210293931
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for a LIDAR system with a mirror housing and a window. The LIDAR system may include a light deflector, a mirror housing encasing the light deflector comprising a window for transmitting light between the light deflector and an exterior of the mirror housing, and a sensor positioned outside the mirror housing for detecting light signals from an environment of the LIDAR system. The light signals may propagate from the environment through the window to the light deflector, and from the light deflector through the window to the sensor. The window may be configured such that light arriving from outside of a field of view of the LIDAR system is deflected by the window away from the sensor. The LIDAR system may also include a processor for processing the light signals detected by the sensor to determine a distance to an object in the environment of the LIDAR system.
