GPT’s proprietary pulsed ToF technology is a 2D active imaging method to sense distance(solid-state focal plane array lidar), but entirely different than the current standard approaches.
Great efforts made in technology and engineering have enabled the GPT sensors low-cost commodity solutions with outstanding features in ambient light suppression, angular resolution, 3D point density, distance, swap, and manufacturability. Under strong(100k lux) sunlight, the sensors still generate decent reliable 3D information with minimized error or false data, which is superior to existing depth sensors when operating outdoor. Up to 20 million 3D data points can be generated per second. Particularly suitable as a source of data for deep learning. This is a significant capability for many practical applications, especially for autonomous vehicles as denser information definitely helps more on identifying obstacles on the road and deciding what to do next.
