3D laser pointer radar has a bright future
Lidar is a visual sensor that perceives the external environment. The automotive 3D lidar combines a laser scanner, a global positioning system (GPS) and an inertial measurement unit (IMU), and emits a laser pointer beam to detect the target to obtain point cloud data. After imaging processing, accurate three-dimensional images can be obtained. The distance measurement accuracy can reach centimeter level with high accuracy. Advantages such as fast operation speed and high efficiency. It is auto-driving cars, robot positioning and navigation, and spatial environment mapping. An essential core sensor in security and defense fields.
Lidar is expected to be the first large-scale promotion in the field of service robots. Then unmanned driving will detonate the market demand for 3D lidar. In view of the limited scale of the AGV forklift market. There is not much demand for 3D lidar. The market capacity of service robots such as household cleaning robots, entertainment and educational robots is large, and existing lidars are relatively mature and low-cost, and their penetration rate is rising rapidly. It is the first explosive growth demand side of lidar in the future. The total market demand for lidar for mobile robots is estimated to be 239 million yuan in 2018. In 2030, 3.464 billion yuan, CAGR 24.5%. As the best path for unmanned driving, 3D lidar for vehicles will directly benefit from the sales growth of unmanned vehicles. It is estimated that the global penetration rate of driverless cars will reach 10% in 2035. It is expected to bring 42.9 billion yuan in automotive 3D lidar market demand.
