AEye Introduces Dynamic Vixels

PRNewswire: AEye introduces a new sensor data type called Dynamic Vixels. In simple terms, Dynamic Vixels combine pixels from digital 2D cameras with voxels from AEye's Agile 3D LiDAR sensor into a single super-resolution sensor data type.

"There is an ongoing argument about whether camera-based vision systems or LiDAR-based sensor systems are better," said Luis Dussan, Founder and CEO of AEye. "Our answer is that both are required – they complement each other and provide a more complete sensor array for artificial perception systems. We know from experience that when you fuse a camera and LiDAR mechanically at the sensor, the integration delivers data faster, more efficiently and more accurately than trying to register and align pixels and voxels in post-processing. The difference is significantly better performance."

"There are three best practices we have adopted at AEye," said Blair LaCorte, Chief of Staff. "First: never miss anything; second: not all objects are equal; and third: speed matters. Dynamic Vixels enables iDAR to acquire a target faster, assess a target more accurately and completely, and track a target more efficiently – at ranges of greater than 230m with 10% reflectivity."
