Rethinking the Three “Rs” of LiDAR: Rate, Resolution and Range

Conventional metrics used for evaluating the performance of LiDAR for autonomous vehicles (such as frame rate, full frame resolution, and detection range) do not sufficiently address the challenges facing autonomous driving. In response, AEye proposes three new metrics for extending LiDAR evaluation, such as: extending the metric of frame rate to include intra-frame object revisit rate; expanding resolution to capture instantaneous enhanced resolution; and enhancing detection range to reflect the more critically important object classification range.
