PIR Optics, Lidar and TOF Camera Solutions.


Sensor devices can measure specific physical quantities (characteristics, properties) such as temperature, distance, acceleration, brightness, spectrum content, to provide their reference system with the necessary info to achieve the desired outcome. The sensor devices we consider are: LIDAR, PIR, TOF systems, RADAR,  light barrier systems, ecc.


Sensor devices find their application in many different fields: from the automotive sector to that of domotics, from indu-strial applications to robotics and bio-medic engineering. Sensor devices allow for managing signals related to specific physical magnitudes to provide info and activate  consequent actions.

As an example, MEMS can detect accelerations of the system and therefore protect the computer disc in case it is acci-dentally dropped or knocked to the ground. ABS systems or anti-lock braking systems help prevent car and motorcycle wheels from locking up and improve steering control whilst braking, Lidar uses active sensors for monitoring the surrounding environment and provide information to avoid possible collision by obstacle on its track.  In general sensors provide the necessary information for the correct feedback of the system.

Optics for sensors is increasing progressively its importance as the number of applications in which sensor are applied increases. The main targets in this field regard sensitivity of the devices, specifically the S/N ratio, compactness, high resolution and low cost.  These targets are often odd one with another and the challenge is to find the best trade off between them. For istance, compactness proves most important against the need for miniaturization, cost reduction, and portability whereas “aperture” and high-degree resolution account for the need for high-level brightness and vision/view of details.

We have experience in designing optical systems for  anti-intrusion sensors, LIDAR, range finder, barrier sensor, and laser systems for industrial measuring. We can be of support throughout the control-system development process.
