Title
(EN) SELECTIVE DEACTIVATION OF LIGHT EMITTERS FOR INTERFERENCE MITIGATION IN LIGHT DETECTION AND RANGING (LIDAR) DEVICES
(FR) DÉSACTIVATION SÉLECTIVE D'ÉMETTEURS DE LUMIÈRE PERMETTANT L'ATTÉNUATION D'INTERFÉRENCE DANS DES DISPOSITIFS DE DÉTECTION ET DE TÉLÉMÉTRIE PAR LA LUMIÈRE (LIDAR)
Abstract
(EN) Example embodiments relate to selective deactivation of light emitters for interference mitigation in light detection and ranging (lidar) devices. An example method includes deactivating one or more light emitters within a lidar device during a firing cycle. The method also includes identifying whether interference is influencing measurements made by the lidar device. Identifying whether interference is influencing measurements made by the lidar device includes determining, for each light detector of the lidar device that is associated with the one or more light emitters deactivated during the firing cycle, whether a light signal was detected during the firing cycle.
(FR) Des modes de réalisation donnés à titre d'exemple de l'invention se rapportent à une désactivation sélective d'émetteurs de lumière permettant une atténuation d'interférence dans des dispositifs de détection et de télémétrie par la lumière (lidar). Un procédé donné à titre d'exemple consiste à désactiver un ou plusieurs émetteurs de lumière à l'intérieur d'un dispositif lidar pendant un cycle d'allumage. Le procédé consiste également à identifier si une interférence influence des mesures effectuées par le dispositif lidar. L'identification de l'influence ou non d'une interférence sur des mesures effectuées par le dispositif lidar consiste à déterminer, pour chaque détecteur de lumière du dispositif lidar associé auxdits émetteurs de lumière désactivés pendant le cycle d'allumage, si un signal lumineux a été détecté pendant le cycle d'allumage.
