Over the past year, we here at RPMC Lasers have published several different pieces of technical content on various LIDAR applications. Some of our more recent posts include a white paper titled “Single Frequency Fiber Lasers for Doppler LIDAR,” and a blog post on the use of aerial LIDAR in bathymetry. LIDAR is quickly becoming one of the most rapidly growing sectors of the overall laser market. In fact, Market Insider recently reported that “ The market for LIDAR is expected to grow double in size in the next five years.” In the same article, published in May of this year, they went on to point out that the primary reason for this rapid growth “… is derived from the increasing spaces of self-driving vehicles as well as enhanced driving assistance.”
