ULO Optics supply stock and bespoke optics to different facets of the automotive industry from imaging to manufacture.
The use of Lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) sensing on board autonomous vehicles has brought global interest to the photonics industry. A laser emits short pulses which are reflected back by surrounding objects and collected by a sensor close to the source. This enables a computer to generate a live image of the surrounding landscape.
Lidar sensors control autonomous driving features such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, road sign detection and parking assist. In addition to Lidar sensing, thermal imaging cameras are also used in some vehicles for driver safety at night.
Meanwhile, automotive manufacture continues to rely on CO2 and Fiber Laser technology in assembly lines around the world.
ULO Optics have optics being used for various purposes throughout automotive manufacturing sites including automation, measurement, robotics and additive manufacture. Please explore our related products below to learn more.
