Automotive PEG

The Automotive Product Emulator identifies those automotive application needs that may be met most successfully with integrated photonics.  The integrated photonic systems applications considered in this emulator are:
  • Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) utilizing integrated photonic technology in Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) systems (LIDAR is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges)
  • Photonic sensors for a wide range of applications
  • Optical Local Area Networks (OLAN)
The two main factors that distinguish the Automotive Product Sector Emulator from the other IPSR product emulators are:
  • The environment in which the product must perform
  • The possibility of disruptive technology change to electric power and ADAS
