Science Talks

The SAL Science Talks are a hub for exchange on scientific topics. External prospective customers and SAL employees meet regularly and talk about the latest findings in their specialist areas. The access to the lectures is open - everyone is welcome!

Marcus Baumgart is going to give a talk on "Time-of-Flight camera simulation: Influence of multipath interference on distance accuracy”.

Lidar sensors are widely used for reliable 3D perception and classification of the environment. Locally resolved brightness and distance information is either achieved by point-by-point scanning or by directly imaging of the whole scene onto a detector array (Time-of-Flight camera). The modelling of a such direct imaging sensor together with a 3D scenery in OpticStudio is presented. OpticStudio’s raytracing capabilities allow a detailed analysis of various multipath interference effects – arrangements where a ray can take several paths within the scene before arriving at the detector. Python scripts are used to cover further raytracing data analysis and per-pixel distance calculation. The developed model is finally used to investigate how environmental effects, namely rain and fog, influence the sensor’s distance accuracy.
