Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
The term ‘LiDAR’ is an acronym for ‘Light Detection and Ranging’, which has been derived from the common term ‘RADAR’. LiDAR technology has been around in the military and research circles since the early 1950s. A typical LiDAR system mainly consists of three major components: a laser sensor, a Global Positioning System (GPS) unit, and an inertial navigation unit. The LiDAR system sends out laser pulses at the object/area to be mapped, and collects data by recording the pulses reflected by/from the object. In certain instances, as many as 100,000 such pulses are sent out every second.

Early LiDAR systems were very bulky and thus, they were very expensive to operate. In the last two decades, technological progress has brought the size of a LiDAR system down to a point where, LiDAR, as a technology, has become a very accurate and affordable solution. The advancement in the GPS and inertial navigation unit technologies has also propelled the LiDAR market further.
