Title (EN) VEHICLE SENSOR SYNCHRONIZATION USING AN EXTERNAL CLOCK SOURCE
(FR) SYNCHRONISATION DE CAPTEUR DE VÉHICULE À L'AIDE D'UNE SOURCE D'HORLOGE EXTERNE
Abstract:
(EN) An example system includes a light detection and ranging (LIDAR) device that scans a field-of-view defined by a pointing direction of the LIDAR device. The system also includes an actuator that adjusts the pointing direction of the LIDAR device. The system also includes a communication interface that receives timing information from an external system. The system also includes a controller that causes the actuator to adjust the pointing direction of the LIDAR device based on at least the received timing information.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système donné à titre d'exemple qui comprend un dispositif de détection de lumière et de télémétrie (LIDAR pour LIght Detection And Ranging ) qui balaye un champ de vision défini par une direction de pointage du dispositif LIDAR. Le système comprend également un actionneur qui ajuste la direction de pointage du dispositif LIDAR. Le système comprend également une interface de communication qui reçoit des informations de synchronisation en provenance d'un système externe. Le système comprend également un dispositif de commande qui contraint l'actionneur à ajuster la direction de pointage du dispositif LIDAR en se basant sur au moins les informations de synchronisation reçues.
