The OSRAM LiDAR percept platform​

OSRAM is developing the first flexible solid state LiDAR platform engineered with a strict focus on industrialization and automotive qualification. In a clear Tier 2 role we want to offer a mid to long range platform to OEMs, Tier 1s and system integrators that can be adapted for their specific application.​

Flexible platform to fit your application or mounting position

The 905nm EEL based percept platform will allow mass market pricing by high integration due to our platform approach. We want to serve long and mid range applications by changing optics and software while leaving the core components of the system untouched.​

LiDAR Long Range

Long Range LiDAR

  • Range > 200m​
  • Narrow Field-of-View (FoV​)
  • Applicable e.g. for highway pilot
  • Typical integration in windscreen module or bumper​
LiDAR Short Range

Mid Range Corner LiDAR

  • Range up to 100m​
  • Wide Field-of-View (FoV​)
  • Applicable e.g. for urban pilot​

Instant range and view adjustment

A novel beam steering approach will allow using one OSRAM LiDAR for different use cases that usually require multiple LiDARs. This will reduce the overall system cost for our customer`s ADAS functions. For example a broad 120° FoV setting will allow a proper perception coverage while driving in the city. Heading for the highway the FoV can automatically be adjusted to monitor a smaller region of interest in a range of up to 250 meters.

What is LiDAR?

LiDAR is a technology that senses precise distances using invisible laser beams. By measuring thousands of distances in a defined field of view a 3D point cloud can be generated.

This data can be processed and used in autonomous driving and driver assistance systems, like highway pilot or active cruise control to detect, classify and track the objects in the environment of the vehicle. By fusing data or the objects detected with the data from other sensors, such as camera vision or mmWave radar, a highly precise digital twin of the vehicle environment can be generated.

LiDAR sensors have been used for years in automotive application, but never reached high volumes. OSRAM's solid state percept platform now reduces complexity, allowing OEMs to bring LiDAR in mass production of private cars. Besides of that OSRAM is keeping the flexibility for different applications and driving situations using a novel beam steering approach. Together with OSRAM‘s strengths in industrialization and in scaling automotive production we want to offer the percept platform at a highly competitive price point.​

LiDAR Time of Flight Method

Time-of-flight LiDAR

Time-of-Flight (ToF) is the method for measuring the distance between a sensor and an object, based on the time difference between the emission of a signal and its return to the sensor, after being reflected by an object. The ToF distance measurement approach is the main stream for LiDAR applications with the highest technological maturity. There are three main principles of modulating. OSRAM's percept platform is based on the pulsed emission approach where a laser pulse is emitted, and a part of it is reflected back from an object. A detector close to the emitter collects the received light signal and the time it took to come back. The distance can be calculated based on this information. The main advantages are the simplicity of the setup, stability, robustness, and the availability of components.
