Data Control Technitic is a leading innovator in 3-dimensional sensing technology. Our 3D time-of-flight LiDAR sensors are conceived, designed and constructed from the ground up to satisfy the six core commercialization criteria: cost, performance, dependability, dimensions, weight, and energy efficiency.
LiDAR is an active sensor technology which employs a laser (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) radar to transmit a light pulse and a receiver with sensitive detectors to measure the backscattered or reflected light. Distance to the object is determined by recording the time between transmitted and backscattered pulses and by using the speed of light to calculate the distance traveled.
LiDAR is commonly used to make high-resolution maps, with applications in geodesy, geomatics, archaeology, geography, geology, geomorphology, seismology, forestry, atmospheric physics, laser guidance, airborne laser swath mapping (ALSM), and laser altimetry. The technology is also used in control and navigation for autonomous cars.
LiDAR speed guns are used by the police to measure the speed of vehicles for speed limit enforcement purposes. Additionally, LiDAR is used in forensics to aid in crime scene investigations. Scans of a scene are taken to record exact details of object placement, blood, and other important information for later review. These scans can also be used to determine bullet trajectory in cases of shootings.
