Modelling LiDAR and Time of Flight Systems with FRED

03 Mar 2022
14:00 - 14:30
Webinar

Join us on 3 March, 2022 at 2:00PM CET for a discussion on Modelling LiDAR and Time of Flight Systems with FRED

Time of flight (ToF) sensing is a key technology in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) such as LiDAR, and can also be found on consumer electronic devices such as phones. In this webinar we will demonstrate how Photon Engineering's FRED Optical Engineering Software's powerful raytrace engine, analysis tools and scripting is used to accurately simulate a time of flight calculation constructed from the optical path length that rays travel.
