LiDAR: Can it be Effective in Adverse Weather Conditions?

Zhenchun Xia, PhD  (Senior Engineer, ADAS Control Systems, Mitsubishi)

Track: Tutorials & Hands-on Demos, Drive - Sensing Technologies

Format: Tutorial/Demo

Vault Recording: TBD

LiDAR – Light, Detection and Ranging Technology – is used in autonomous vehicles to detect, range, and map the car’s surroundings. Ideally, these cars will be operating in dry, sunny conditions. But what happens when it starts to rain, snow, or fog sets in? This session will take an in-depth look at how LiDAR works and if we can really rely on the technology in less than perfect driving conditions. Some testing results under adverse weather conditions will be discussed.

This presentation also explores the capability and advantages/limits of LiDAR detections in the edge conditions, like very far distance (up to 200 - 300 meters), highly dense point cloud in specific environment (trees surrounding traffic interaction, etc), as well as the highly dynamic driving conditions (high speed of host vehicles and the targeting vehicles, etc).

The general LiDAR detections algorithm and the calibration technology will also be discussed.
