Laser radar application market and development analysis
takeaway: laser detection and measurement, more widely known as LiDAR ( From the same terminology RADAR) , it is a kind of using laser pulses to measure the surface distance sensing technology. Using this technique can obtain 3 d information and the surface characteristics of the surface shape.

laser radar technology help mapping professionals and scientists more precise, accurate and flexible to measure and understand the natural environment and artificial environment.
earlier, laser radar is limited to the government and military applications. With the progress of technology and laser radar manufacturing cost is reduced, it widely permeates the industrial and commercial field.
laser radar technology of the main applications include: mining, forestry, archaeology, geology, seismology, topographic survey and electricity corridor figure, etc. In addition, the laser detection and measurement also covers the application in the field of civil engineering, including transportation, maps and urban planning, infrastructure projects and the path planning and so on.
at present, civil engineering and planning is the main revenue source for laser detection and measurement system.
laser radar market classification, depending on the type of products include: airborne laser radar, laser radar, ground mobile laser radar and short distance laser radar. However, technological innovation promoted the ground laser radar and move the cost-benefit ratio of laser radar system. In addition, the laser radar can also be in accordance with the market for hardware categories: inertial navigation system, GPS/GNSS, laser diode, cameras and MEMS mirror, etc.
there is currently no potential substitute for laser radar technology. Moreover, with its technical advantages in the field of application, laser radar automation market is growing rapidly. For these reasons, laser radar market in the near future is expected to increase substantially.
FARO, has introduced the Focus of 3 d laser radar scanner, this is the 3 d scan for fixed a new low-end equipment market. PrimeSense sensor 3 d laser radar is a non-traditional, it put forward a applicable to real-time navigation of a revolutionary solution. The recent findings of laser radar technology is widely used in digital mapping can also help the growth of this technology.
in addition, the introduction of low-cost hand-held laser radar is expected in the next five years to reform the surveying and mapping industry.
laser radar market development slow reason includes the high cost of equipment, data processing software is not enough mature, and the lack of the user's perception of the technology scope. With the progress of technology, laser radar was excavated in application in the field of agriculture, including building contains slope and sunshine index of farmland topographic map. The technology to help farmers by pointing out require expensive chemical fertilizer production of key areas to achieve the highest. In addition, the researchers dedicated to indoor ground laser radar automatic modeling to help them to simulate building interior.
laser radar market is scattered, almost distributed all over the world. The main players for hardware providers, major markets including IEGL Laser Measurement Systems GmbH, Leica Geosystems, Renishaw Plc, fizzy imaging, Inc. ,美国天宝导航有限和Optech公司。
