Neuvition announced the first version of its 480 lines HD video LiDAR, Titan M1. The semi solid state LiDAR has a resolution of 480 vertical lines and 1280 pixels max for each line (resolution of 1280 x 480).
It has up to 1.5 million points/sec data rate with multiple returns and distance up to 200 meters. The Titan M1 uses a 1550nm wavelength laser which is eye safe and works better in certain weather conditions compared to the 905nm laser. It allows the LiDAR to be adjusted dynamically to use different resolution, power, scan density, distribution pattern, etc.
The Titan M1 comes with a video camera on board. It can generate the colorless point cloud, or the colored point cloud which is important for many applications. By combining distance data and color, it becomes easy to generate the 3D color model with Neuvition LiDAR devices. Besides the autonomous driving, other applications such as 3D imaging or surveillance can benefit from the color point cloud and the point cloud fused video.
