A recent publication from the Takashima Lab on all-MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) LIDAR address a quasi-solid-state lidar system employing Texas Instruments Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) and 2-dimensional MEMS mirror for lidar transmitter and a 2nd DMD for receiver.
The research team demonstrated the lidar system by combining and synchronizing two kinds of MEMS devices. The beam steering concept is expected to achieve more intelligent and adaptive lidar system by replacing a bulky, thus slow, scanning LIDARs with fast and light ones with a mass-produced Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) device.
The paper is selected as a “Feature paper” that represents the most advanced research with significant potential for high impact in the field, as well as “Editor’s choice” that is considered as interesting to authors and important in this field.
