Visualizing LiDAR with the Oculus Quest 2
If you're interested in learning a little more about LiDAR sensors, consider taking a look at this video I shot where I took a semi-deep dive into two different LiDAR sensors. One of my technicians suggested that we try using the Oculus Quest 2 to see if it would be able to display the light patterns and he was correct. The Oculus device uses LiDAR and infrared cameras to keep the user within a defined boundary and did a good job of helping us visualize the patterns emitted by these two sensors.
Regarding the sensors, one is out of a 2015 Mazda 3 and helps support the Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) system and is manufactured by Continental, the other is out of a 2019 Audi A6 and is manufactured by Valeo.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Nice video. Now I can write off my new Quest 2 as a business expense!
Of course, some of your staff members may need a pair as well!
Nice demonstration Scott. I know full well, the time, effort and expense that it takes to create such a presentation. I also believe that an active curious mind, stands a better chance of surviving advancing age related dementia onset in a healthy person. Relative to the saying "Food for thought", this is excellent “brain food”. Thank you!
Thanks Martin, as you can see I indeed find this stuff interesting. It's comforting when you know a little more about what's happening behind the curtain! Brain food, I like that and you're welcome, I appreciate your feedback!
My apologies if this has been asked before on a different post. Do we know who manufactures the radars and lidars? I would severely believe the car manufactures do not. If radar is a radar the same has Honda, Toyota, Nissan. Why then are there a bunch of ways to calibrate the radar? Wonder if you can use the Honda triangle for a Nissan?
In my opinion, the reason for the different requirements is because each automaker sources the equipment (radar, lidar, camera, etc) from suppliers. Each one works out the solutions they need for their particular application and this is why we have different requirements for service. I was told by one supplier that the following scenario (simplified) is not uncommon: OEM 1 contacts supplier 1…
That makes sense. Basically just like other parts the car manufactures don’t make. They source. thank you for the info!
One last thing. I saw on your laptop you have the Tesla logo with what appeared to be a diagnostic tab. After looking at your you tube videos it’s apparent. I looked at Ebay and found alot. I don’t like ordering incorrectl. I’m wondering if you have a source you purchased yours for. Or which ones from eBay if you bought from there? I would most appreciate it :) thanks again from Saint Louis.
Tesla is now making more stuff available to the AM. Check out this post for more info: diag.net/msg/mqs9909srz… In case you missed this post: diag.net/msg/m3qkfmm2qt… Tesla SI is now free. As far as cables go, it depends on the platform and the year. and if you did through that thread you'll find links. I just had a 2022 model 3 in yesterday and it had a RJ45…
