Title: LIDAR SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OPERATING A LIDAR SYSTEM
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a LIDAR system (1), comprising a transmission unit (20), which comprises a polarization apparatus (21), wherein the polarization apparatus (21) is configured to set a polarization of a scanning beam (2), a reception unit (30), which is configured to receive the scanning beam (2) after the latter was reflected at a point (41) in surroundings of the LIDAR system (1), wherein the reception unit (30) comprises a polarization identification apparatus (31), which is configured to identify a polarization of the reflected scanning beam (2), and an evaluation unit (32), which is configured to establish a polarization difference on the basis of a difference between the polarization set by the transmission unit (20) and the polarization identified by the reception unit (30).
