Title
(EN) LIDAR APPARATUS WITH ROTATABLE POLYGON DEFLECTOR HAVING REFRACTIVE FACETS
(FR) APPAREIL LIDAR AVEC DÉFLECTEUR POLYGONAL ROTATIF AYANT DES FACETTES DE RÉFRACTION
Abstract
(EN)
A LIDAR apparatus can include a polygon deflector that includes a plurality of facets. The LIDAR apparatus can include a motor rotatably coupled to the polygon deflector. The motor is configured to rotate the polygon deflector about a first axis orthogonal to a first plane. The LIDAR apparatus can include an optic positioned within an interior of the polygon deflector. The optic collimates a first beam to be incident on a particular facet of the plurality of facets. The particular facet of the plurality of facets refracts the first beam in the first plane between a first angle and a second angle as the polygon deflector rotates about the first axis to output a second beam. For use in an autonomous vehicle.

Un appareil LIDAR peut comprendre un déflecteur polygonal qui comprend une pluralité de facettes. L'appareil LIDAR peut comprendre un moteur couplé rotatif au déflecteur polygonal. Le moteur est conçu pour faire tourner le déflecteur polygonal autour d'un premier axe orthogonal à un premier plan. L'appareil LIDAR peut comprendre une optique positionnée à l'intérieur du déflecteur polygonal. L'optique collimate un premier faisceau destiné à venir heurter une facette particulière de la pluralité de facettes. La facette particulière de la pluralité de facettes réfracte le premier faisceau dans le premier plan entre un premier angle et un second angle lorsque le déflecteur polygonal tourne autour du premier axe pour émettre un second faisceau. Cet appareil est destiné à être utilisé dans un véhicule autonome.
