  • Publication number: 20180120424
    Abstract: A LIDAR system is provided. The LIDAR system comprises at least one processor configured to: control at least one light source in a manner enabling light flux to vary over a scan of a field of view, the field of view including a first portion and a second portion; receive on a pixel-by-pixel basis, signals from at least one sensor; estimate noise in at least some of the signals associated with the first portion of the field of view; alter a sensor sensitivity for reflections associated with the first portion of the field of view; estimate noise in at least some of the signals associated with the second portion of the field of view; and alter a sensor sensitivity for reflections associated with the second portion of the field of view based on the estimation of noise in the second portion of the field of view.

  • Publication number: 20180120441
    Abstract: A LIDAR system is provided. The LIDAR system comprises at least one processor configured to: control at least one light source in a manner enabling light flux to vary over scans of a field of view using light from the at least one light source; control at least one light deflector to deflect light from the at least one light source; receive from at least one sensor, reflections signals indicative of light reflected from objects in the field of view; determine, based on the reflections signals of an initial light emission, whether an object is located in an immediate area of the LIDAR system and within a threshold distance from the at least one light deflector, and when no object is detected in the immediate area, control the at least one light source such that an additional light emission is projected toward the immediate area.

  • Publication number: 20180113216
    Abstract: Disclosed is a scanning device including: a photonic emitter assembly (PTX) to emit at least one pulse of inspection photons in accordance with at least one adjustable pulse parameter, a photonic reception and detection assembly (PRX) to receive reflected photons reflected back from an object, the PRX including a detector to detect in accordance with at least one adjustable detection parameter the reflected photons and produce a detected scene signal, and a closed loop controller to: (a) control the PTX and PRX, (b) receive the detected scene signal from the detector and (c) update said at least one pulse parameter and at least one detection parameter at least partially based on a work plan derived at least partially from the detected scene signal.

  • Publication number: 20180113200
    Abstract: A LIDAR system is provided. The LIDAR system comprises at least one processor configured to: control at least one light source in a manner enabling light intensity to vary over a scan of a field of view using light from the at least one light source; control at least one light deflector to deflect light from the at least one light source; obtain an identification of at least one distinct region of interest in the field of view; and increase light allocation to the at least one distinct region of interest relative to other regions, such that following a first scanning cycle, light intensity in at least one subsequent second scanning cycle at locations associated with the at least one distinct region of interest is higher than light intensity in the first scanning cycle at the locations associated with the at least one distinct region of interest.

  • Publication number: 20180100928
    Abstract: Disclosed is a scanning device including a photonic emitter assembly (PTX) to emit at least one pulse of inspection photons in accordance with at least one adjustable pulse (generation) parameter, a photonic reception and detection assembly (PRX) to receive reflected photons reflected back from an object, the PRX including a dynamic detector to detect the reflected photons based on one or more adjustable detector parameter, the detector further configured to produce a detected scene signal, and a closed loop controller to control the PTX and PRX and to receive a PTX feedback and a PRX feedback, the controller further comprising a situational assessment unit to receive the detected scene signal from the detector and produce a scanning plan and update the at least one pulse parameter and at least one detector parameter at least partially based on the scanning plan.
