The AIT Austrian Institute of Technology is now pushing the limits of sensor technology through its trans-national research project “LIANDRI – Advancing time-of-flight technology for high performance light detection and ranging”.
The goal is to bridge innovative yet application-driven research on photonic sensing with near-future exploitation in the fields of automated driving. In the medium term, LIANDRI’s findings will enable cars to recognize and identify distant yet small obstacles along road infrastructure.
LIANDRI is a 3-year project including 4 partners from Austria and Germany. It addresses a multi-disciplinary research agenda that targets innovations in photonics, microelectronics and signal processing and is jointly funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG), the Association of German Engineers (VDI) and the European Commission within the ERA-NET Co-Fund. Research partners AIT and University of Siegen will work closely together with innovative industrial partners ams AG and Soft2Tec, which have a long product track record in the field of sensing and 3D camera technology.
