What is LiDAR? How everyday devices use lasers to scan your environment

LiDAR technology helps devices scan their surroundings. Apple LiDAR, also known as Light Detection and Ranging, uses lasers to measure the distance, shape, and orientation of 3D objects.   LiDAR is becoming increasingly common, appearing in devices like the iPhone 12 Pro, robot vacuums, and self-driving car prototypes. These devices use LiDAR lasers to scan the environment around them, getting a more accurate picture of how the area is shaped and what objects they're near. Visit Business I...

Density’s Open Area radar tracks people in a space, precisely but anonymously

Everyone in the world is rethinking shared spaces right about now, and part of that rethink is understanding how they’re used, minute by minute and day by day. Density’s tiny ceiling-mounted radar finds and tracks people unobtrusively but with great precision, letting the powers that be monitor every table, chair, and office. Okay, in some ways that doesn’t sound great. But don’t worry, we’ll get to that. Density began looking into creating large-scale people-monitoring tech after seeing the ...

National Weather Service spots huge bat colony on radar

In Phoenix on Sunday, the National Weather Service's radar captured what first appears to be rain clouds blooming over the Valley of the Sun. Turns out, it was likely a large colony of Mexican free-tailed bats on the move. From WSMV: "That doesn't look like a normal shower, the way everything is sort of fanning out. They don't really have a uniform direction. That's usually your clue initially that it's probably animals flying around," said NWS meteorologist Sean Benedict[…]The radar likely s...

Researchers Find That Radar Can Be Used to Detect a Nail in a Tire Long Before It Goes Flat

Your car’s dashboard is a smorgasbord of information when it comes to the health and performance of your vehicle. But the one thing it can’t warn drivers about is when the tread on their tires has worn out. It’s a safety risk that researchers from Carnegie Mellon University are focusing on with a new real-time…Read more...

LeoLabs launches its global satellite monitoring and collision avoidance service

LeoLabs has been building out its global network of space-scanning radars for the last couple years, leading up to today’s launch of its Collision Avoidance system, essentially satellite-monitoring-as-a-service. It should prove an indispensable asset to startups that don’t happen to have their own state of the art radar setup. Space is full of junk, and it isn’t tracked as closely as anyone would like. A bit of debris the size of a pebble could put nearly any satellite out of commission, and ...

Echodyne steers its high-tech radar beam on autonomous cars with EchoDrive

Echodyne set the radar industry on its ear when it debuted its pocket-sized yet hyper-capable radar unit for drones and aircraft. But these days all the action is in autonomous vehicles — so they reinvented their technology to make a unique sensor that doesn’t just see things but can communicate intelligently with the AI behind the wheel. EchoDrive, the company’s new product, is aimed squarely at AVs, looking to complement lidar and cameras with automotive radar that’s as smart as you need it...

New Radar That Fits On The Back Of A Truck Helping Scientists See Inside Wildfires

(CNN) — Scientists studying California’s devastating wildfires are using a powerful new radar system that could help them better understand how they spread and how firefighters should fight them. The mobile Ka-band Doppler radar rig is similar to what meteorologists use to monitor the weather, but it is finely tuned to detect ash particles in a fire plume, said Craig Clements, the director of San Jose State University’s Fire Weather Research Laboratory. It works by emitting bursts of millimeter ...

The new Pixel 4 isn’t just a great phone for users, it’s a great phone for Google too.

I was in the Scottish Highlands a week ago, on a road trip with the family with absolutely no network on my Pixel 2 phone. In essence, I was cut off from the rest of the world. No internet, no messages, no calls. All I had was the car’s radio, which happened to be catching some music on a DAB station. I looked at my Pixel 2’s screen, completely stunned to see that without any network or internet, my Google Pixel 2 had identified what song was playing. Right underneath the notification bar, it...
