Microvision CEO emphasizes German pioneering role

The Lidar solution from Microvision combines sensors for the dynamic field of view, short, medium and long distances in one component. Using 905 nanometer lasers and time-of-flight measurement, even small objects at great distances are to be detected, the speed of objects recorded and their directions of movement anticipated. To do this, the system updates the position and speed 30 times per second. In addition, the sensors are insensitive to interference from other lidar sensors and also work at night, explains CEO Sumit Sharma. He is impressed by Germany's pioneering role in automated driving and emphasizes that the US manufacturer will [open] a location in Bavaria for this reason. “The USA is one to three years behind Germany,” said Sharma.
