Continental has developed and is shipping samples of its new and advanced automotive-grade solid-state LIDAR to the commercial vehicle market. The HFL110 3D Flash LIDAR enhances Continental’s existing ADAS sensor suite or radar and 2D color sensors for automated driving.

The company says the HFL110 sensor delivers detailed and accurate 3-D profile in 330 nanoseconds per frame, regardless of time-of-day or weather conditions.

The new 3D Flash LIDAR HFL110 sensor has been developed for use at close range (about 164 ft. or less). Immune to vibration or speed distortion, the sensor generates a high-resolution 3-D point cloud 25 times per second within its 120-degree field of view. The HFL110’s multiple precise distance measurements capture 4,096 contiguous pixels of depth data in real-time across the field of view.

The contiguous HFL110 pixels tolerate nearby high or low reflectivity surfaces, producing a point cloud and/or an object list to define and track the vehicle’s surroundings and moving objects within it. Enhanced by an integrated heater and an optional automatic washer system, it can also be combined with Continental’s radars and 2-D cameras.
