LIDAR Sensor Market Introduction
Light Detection and Ranging, or LIDAR as its more commonly known as, is a technology developed with the help of laser lights for detection, measurement, and mapping of physical surfaces or environment. It helps in measuring distance between objects or target from source using laser light. Sensors that enable the entire operation are called LIDAR sensors. These sensors are now extensively used to enable contactless measurement.
LIDAR sensors are widely deployed in autonomous cars, advanced driver assistance systems, identification of depth of waterbodies, aeronautical surveillance, automated guided vehicles, traffic monitoring, and logistics management, archeological, industrial and other geospatial imaging applications.
Unidirectional or one-dimensional, two-dimensional and three-dimensional LIDAR sensors are now available in the market to cater to specific topology and information requirements. Light lasers used in these sensors illuminate the object being measured, doing away with deployment of any external light source. Moreover, these sensors provide real-time information as they rely on dynamic mode of measurement.
Typically, these LIDAR sensors can be utilized to measure distances between objects of any size with accuracy and precision, as operations are executed with the help of light. This feature makes these sensors apt for utilization in myriad of industrial, defense, automotive and transportation, meteorology and other applications.
LIDAR Sensor Market Dynamics
Increasing integration of automated features in automotive, such as pedestrian detection, collision avoidance, connected cars, automated cruise control and other active safety applications are expected to provide substantial boost to the LIDAR sensors market. Utilization of LIDAR technology in maritime security, homeland and border surveillance, environmental conservation, archeological surveys, hydrological modeling for managing and mitigating risk of floods and oil and gas exploration is expected to set the market on a steady upward growth trajectory. Mega trend of Industry 4.0, increasing deployment of industrial robotics and efforts towards reduction of human intervention in hazardous and monotonous workspace is further expected to increase deployment of LIDAR sensors in the industrial sector.
On the flip side, technical limitations such as degraded quality of images in foggy and rainy season, risk of damage to eyesight from exposure to laser light and stringent regulations over use in restricted areas act as minor restraints for LIDAR sensor market.
