LANDING – LiDAR Applications

DEI Laser Diode Drivers for LiDAR Applications

 

LiDAR or "Light Detection and Ranging" is changing the way we measure and model the world around us. In industries from Biology, Agriculture, Forestry and Meteorology to Urban Planning, Mineral Exploration, Renewable Energy and, of course, Autonomous Vehicles (ADAS); LiDAR is transforming applications across industries.

For over 20 years Directed Energy has been providing a broad range of laser diode driver modules for LiDAR, from the early laser speed guns for law enforcement and 3 dimensional (3D) imaging.

Lab to Launch - Even with a variety of standard laser diode drivers for LiDAR applications we know the each application has its own unique requirements. That's why we offer the Lab to Launch program where we partner with you to provide the instruments or modules you need for your research and development work in the lab and offer custom OEM solutions that are tailored to your unique requirements.
