  • Detail

Laser radar industry has broad prospects for development, solid-state technology is the future development trend

laser radar is a comprehensive optical detection and measurement system. Compared with ordinary radar, laser radar can provide high-resolution geometric images of radiation intensity, range images and velocity images. At the beginning, it was mainly used in the military field. Now this technology has gradually penetrated into the civil consumer market. Especially in the field of driverless driving, with Google, Baidu, Ford, Audi, BMW and other enterprises successively adopting the sensing solutions of lidar, lidar has become the "standard" for the research of driverless technology

at present, lidar can be divided into mechanical scanning lidar and solid-state lidar. According to the number of lines, lidar can be divided into 2D, 2.5D (1, 4, 8 lines) and 3D (16, 32, 64 lines)

driverless and lidar

at present, the application of lidar in driverless technology, first, 3D modeling of the surrounding environment of the vehicle, obtaining the depth information of the environment, identifying obstacles, and building a driveable area. With the further popularization and application of driverless driving technology, which can be seen by everyone and clicked by everyone, driving the development of driverless industry chain, lidar, as the mainstream sensor in driverless, benefits clearly

the on-board laser radar industry is ready to go.

as one of the most important sensors in driverless technology, on-board laser radar is of great significance to ensure the driving safety of driverless vehicles. With the further development of driverless industry, the market prospect of vehicle mounted lidar is bright. According to the "analysis report on the market outlook and investment strategic planning of the lidar industry" released by the forward looking Industry Research Institute, the market scale of China's on-board lidar in 2015 was 109 million yuan, and by 2016, the market scale reached 193 million yuan, with a year-on-year increase of 77.06%. With the gradual popularization of driverless cars, the market scale of China's on-board lidar will maintain a trend of rapid growth. It is estimated that by 2021, the market scale of China's on-board lidar will exceed 600million yuan. In the future, the industrialization of driverless cars and the reduction of the cost of on-board lidar will jointly promote the explosive growth of the on-board lidar industry

market scale of China's on-board lidar industry in

lidar is temporarily unable to produce vehicles in mass production due to its high price and large volume. However, major companies are actively developing new products to solve these two problems, but they are actively developing new products. 5 The jaw of hydraulic ceramic zigzag testing machine is often used to solve these two problems, and the prospect is optimistic

price decline of lidar

from the selling price of US $80000 in 2007, the thickness of 201 zigzag sample blank is the thickness of steel; When it is larger than 30mm, it has been reduced to $375 in 7 years. It only takes 10 years for the price to decline by more than 99% and will drop to $175 in 2018. It is expected that the price of lidar will gradually drop to $100 in the next three years, which will pave the way for the use of lidar in mass-produced vehicles

the price of lidar has declined

the market scale of lidar is expected to exceed 10billion in 2020. It is expected that lidar will benefit from the improvement of technology and production capacity. The cost of a single lidar is expected to reach 400 yuan in 2020. Measured by the installation of lidars (front and rear detection distance) in the whole vehicle, the corresponding cost of the whole vehicle is yuan. According to the estimation of 25% penetration rate of the front loading market and 5% penetration rate of the rear loading market in 2020, the market scale of China is expected to be nearly 20billion

the solid-state laser radar is the future trend, which has the advantages of miniaturization and low cost. The solid-state laser radar does not need rotating parts, so it is smaller and convenient to be integrated in the body. The coating series products have superior process adaptability and stability, and the system reliability is improved, and the cost can be greatly reduced. Therefore, lidar has the trend of solid-state development

one way for the industry to reduce costs is to eliminate the mechanical rotating structure and adopt solid-state technology to fundamentally reduce the cost of lidar; One way is to reduce the number of laser radar lines and combine multiple low line number laser radars. Previously, the domestic manufacturer Suteng juchuang showed a set of multi lidar coupling solutions for highway environment on cesasia in 2017, including four 16 line lidars, which is only a quarter of the price of 64 line lidars. In the future, the cost of on-board lidar will be greatly reduced, and large-scale commercial applications can be expected
