LiDAR systems measure distances by stopping the time a laser pulse needs to travel from the sensor to an object and back. By steering the laser beam in two dimensions and conducting more than 1 million distance measurements per second, a 3D point cloud of the surrounding of the sensor can be created in real time. The heart of the LiDAR system are the Blickfeld silicon MEMS mirrors that steer the laser beam by deflecting it in large angles. With your help, we want to develop a setup that enables automated end-of-line testing and calibration of the Blickfeld LiDAR system to gain more detailed insight in its technical parameters and establish a stable production process.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer compensation for work on these thesis.
