GeniusPros Technologies (GPT) has revealed its new signature optical-solid-state surface array laser radar at a product release event at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. This advance affirms the company’s mission to provide a “deep vision beyond” -- the new laser radar has drawn the attention of autonomous vehicle brands like ZOOX, Waymo, Google and Janzsoft.
GPT has also laid out how it believes the fields of autonomous vehicles, intelligent robots, human behavior recognition and consumer electronics will evolve in coming years and how it is best positioned to succeed in that environment.
Based on GPT’s first-generation ToF sensor chip, the three optical-solid-state surface laser radar frameworks fulfill 3D sensing capability with a large field of view (70 degrees) and high spatial resolution (0.006 degrees H) and can work in strong light conditions (100Klux). They can be applied in human behavior recognition, robot navigation and avoidance, optical inspection and ranging solutions for self-driving cars. The GPT sensor combines pulsed laser, 2D GPT image sensor, and proprietary depth extraction algorithms, to achieve 2x to 5x higher depth resolution over similar products.
Reflected signals will only be transferred and collected to the sensor from a specified range of interest, which allows users to accept light contributions from a user-controlled and programmable distance range while rejecting light contributions from outside of a certain range.
With the low cost and high-spatial resolution of GPT’s laser, radars are an ideal choice for mass-produced autonomous cars. The production of autonomous cars utilizes laser radars to generate intricate 3D maps of vehicles’ surroundings to make informed decisions on reacting to different circumstances and obtain an advantage over conventional vehicles in terms of awareness levels.
GPT is working with universities and academic institutions to build a dense 3D databased for packed circumstances, which will have a revolutionary impact on the future development of artificial intelligence (AI).
