Master Thesis Optics (m/f/d) Development and Validation of a LiDAR Sensor Model


Your mission

We develop and produce breakthrough LiDAR sensors for a wide range of applications in automotive, robotics, smart infrastructure, people counting and many more. If you’re interested in optical sensors, you’ve come to the right place.
 As part of the current development of a new product, in this thesis, a sensor model will be derived and validated. In addition to modeling the optical and electronic sensor components, one focus will be identifying and reproducing various error sources in the system, such as detector noise and daylight interference. In this thesis, you will get a deep understanding of modern LiDAR sensors and gain hands-on experience by validating your model with your own measurements.
