Adaptive control of Ladar systems using spatial index of prior Ladar return data
Publication/Patent Number: US10656252B1 Publication Date: 2020-05-19 Application Number: 16/356,046 Filing Date: 2019-03-18 Inventor: Dussan, Luis Carlos   Steinhardt, Allan   Presutti federico   Benscoter, Joel David   Assignee: AEYE, INC.   IPC: G01C3/08 Abstract: Disclosed herein are examples of ladar systems and methods where data about a plurality of ladar returns from prior ladar pulse shots gets stored in a spatial index that associates ladar return data with corresponding locations in a coordinate space to which the ladar return data pertain. This spatial index can then be accessed by a processor to retrieve ladar return data for locations in the coordinate space that are near a range point to be targeted by the ladar system with a new ladar pulse shot. This nearby prior ladar return data can then be analyzed by the ladar system to help define a parameter value for use by the ladar system with respect to the new ladar pulse shot. Examples of such adaptively controlled parameter values can include shot energy, receiver parameters, shot selection, camera settings, and others.

System and Method for Synthetically Filling Ladar Frames Based on Prior Ladar Return Data
Publication/Patent Number: US2020200878A1 Publication Date: 2020-06-25 Application Number: 16/356,116 Filing Date: 2019-03-18 Inventor: Dussan, Luis Carlos   Steinhardt, Allan   Presutti federico   Benscoter, Joel David   Assignee: AEYE, Inc.   IPC: G01S7/481 Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed where a ladar system synthetically fills a ladar frame. A ladar transmitter can employ compressive sensing to interrogate a subset of range points in a field of view. Returns from this subset of range points correspond to a sparse ladar frame, and interpolation can be performed on these returns to synthetically fill the ladar frame.
