Modeling a Lidar in OpticStudio: Characterizing Range for Lidar Systems. For lidar systems, a key specification is the range at which the lidar can detect a positive return signal. This characteristic is determined by several factors, such as the energy contained in the light pulse sent by the lidar, the response of the detector used in the system, the transmission of the optics used, and more. In this webinar, we will explore approaches in system setup using OpticStudio that can enable users to better understand the range of their lidars, allowing for quick system validation in ideal working conditions as well as non-ideal edge cases.
