Home | Benchmark procedure | Partners | Venue | What is LiDAR!

LiDAR can be applied in many areas and industries (just some examples):

  • Agrifood (smart farming, forestry / vegetation, food quality)
  • Archeology
  • Automotive (autonomous driving, traffic control)
  • Aviation
  • Civil engineering
  • Geographical mapping (Topography / Bathymetry)
  • Robotics (Cobots, logistics, service robots for warehouse / stores and for healthcare)
  • Surveillance / Security (Public / Private)
  • Space (Docking space capsule)
  • Transport (autonomous trains / ships)

 Are you convinced about the performance of your LiDAR system and are curious to compare it with other systems, then join the LiDAR Olympics on May 16th!

This event is not only meant to benchmark the participating systems in a competitive environment, but equally important is to meet the participating teams, discussing issues, exchanging experience / knowledge in order stimulate further development of the LiDAR technology and community. Learn playfully more about LiDAR performances and their challenges and exchange with others.

Enjoy this day of testing, learning and meeting the unexpected in order to make the LiDAR technology better!

Fraunhofer IMS and Jakajima with location partner Automotive Campus have taken the initiative to organise the LiDAR Olympics.

Benchmark procedure
There are 4 challenges in form of testing stations which have to be mastered by the LiDAR cameras:

  • Multipath Interference
  • Sunlight Noise
  • Reflectance
  • Angular Resolution

Teams
Each team can have max. 2 members. This 1st edition of the LiDAR Olympics will provide place for 8 teams max!

Participation
Research institutes / universities but also commercial organisations can join for free!
