About this talk

What is the cost of a robot falling down the stairs, a drone crashing into trees or a vehicle injuring humans? Today’s transition from the automated towards the autonomous requires robots to have extensive and reliable information about their surroundings. Autonomous systems can gather this information using numerous methods which enable the functional safety of UAVs, AGVs, robots and self-driving cars. One method is to use sensor technology based on the time-of-flight (ToF) method. This webinar will give you an overview of ToF principles, including direct and indirect ToF. In addition, it will explore practical use cases and examples showing techniques to overcome today’s challenges in autonomous robotics using Broadcom’s solutions for direct and indirect ToF applications. You will learn about: o Time-of-flight (ToF) principles o Applications & use cases o Challenges & solutions
