Description
The essence of innovation is to create a new generation of compact, high-precision and high-speed obstacle avoidance laser systems for ground, sea-based, and air-based autonomous platforms. Such laser systems provide high-speed scanning of the surrounding area and perform high-precision measurements of the distance to any obstacles and then these systems form the information about the obstacle spatial position data to correct the direction of movement in the difficult terrain conditions or air traffic situation. These systems are used in mobile (air) three-dimensional scanners, in robotic navigation platforms, on-board real-time monitoring devices, automatic docking facilities systems, and on-board terrain mapping units, multi-function remote control systems for industrial and military applications.

Innovative aspect and main advantages:
Innovative aspects are: high-precision laser measurements with the new error compensation real-time algorithms; application of new effective methods to reduce the influence of the environment dynamic changes on the measurement accuracy; development of methods to greatly expand the dynamic range.

Problem solved:
The use of this innovation is caused by the need to provide guaranteed safe movement (or flight) for the autonomous robotic platforms by overcoming obstacles in difficult terrain conditions or air traffic situation.

Development status:
Prototype with favorable lab results

Potential customers, markets:
Consumers are numerous companies that produce: manned and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) with the obstacle avoidance systems; mobile three-dimensional scanners; robotic navigation platforms; on-board real-time monitoring devices; automatic docking facilities systems; on-board terrain mapping units; multi-function remote control systems for industrial and military applications.
