(DE) HOLOGRAFISCHE LICHTERKENNUNG UND -MESSUNG
(EN) HOLOGRAPHIC LIGHT DETECTION AND RANGING
(FR) DÉTECTION ET TÉLÉMÉTRIE PAR LUMIÈRE HOLOGRAPHIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A light detection and ranging system arranged to scan a scene comprises a light source arranged to output light having a first characteristic. A spatial light modulator is arranged to receive the light from the light source and output spatially-modulated light in accordance with computer-generated holograms represented thereon. A holographic controller is arranged to output a plurality of holograms to the spatial light modulator. Each hologram is arranged to form a corresponding light footprint within the scene. The holographic controller is further arranged to change the position of the light footprint within the scene. A light detector is arranged to receive light having the first characteristic from the scene and output a light response signal. The plurality of computer- generated holograms comprise a first plurality of holograms arranged to provide a first scan and a second plurality of holograms arranged to provide a second scan. In embodiments, the first plurality of holograms and second plurality of holograms are interleaved.

La présente invention concerne un système de détection et de télémétrie à lumière conçu pour balayer une scène, le système comprenant une source de lumière conçue pour émettre une lumière ayant une première caractéristique. Un modulateur spatial de lumière est conçu pour recevoir la lumière provenant de la source de lumière et délivrer en sortie une lumière modulée spatialement en fonction d'hologrammes générés par ordinateur représentés sur celui-ci. Un dispositif de commande holographique est conçu pour délivrer une pluralité d'hologrammes au modulateur spatial de lumière. Chaque hologramme est conçu pour former une empreinte lumineuse correspondante à l'intérieur de la scène. Le dispositif de commande holographique est conçu en outre pour modifier la position de l'empreinte lumineuse à l'intérieur de la scène. Un détecteur de lumière est conçu pour recevoir une lumière ayant la première caractéristique provenant de la scène et délivrer un signal de réponse à la lumière. La pluralité d'hologrammes générés par ordinateur comprend une première pluralité d'hologrammes servant à fournir un premier balayage et une seconde pluralité d'hologrammes servant à fournir un second balayage. Dans des modes de réalisation, la première pluralité d'hologrammes et la seconde pluralité d'hologrammes sont entrelacées.
