LiDAR News: Ibeo, Velodyne, Outsight

ArsTechnica: "Ibeo Operations Director Mario Brumm told Ars that Ibeo's next-generation lidar, due out later this year, would feature an 128-by-80 array of VCSELs coupled with a 128-by-80 array of SPADs. Ibeo is pursuing a modular design that will allow the company to use different optics to deliver a range of models with different capabilities—from a long-range lidar with a narrow field of view to a wide-angle lidar with shorter range. Ibeo is aiming to make these lidars cheap enough that they can be sold to automakers for mass production starting in late 2022 or early 2023."

IEEE Spectrum quotes Velodyne new Anand Gopalan talking about the company's new solid state Velabit LiDAR:

Gopalan wouldn’t say much about how it works, only that the beam-steering did not use tiny mirrors based on micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). “It differs from MEMS in that there’s no loss of form factor or loss of light,” he said. “In the most general language, it uses a metamaterial activated by low-cost electronics.”
