ICTP College on Optics: Theory and Applications of Lidar | (smr 3706)
Starts 16 May 2022
Ends 19 May 2022
Central European Time
Deadline extended: 12 May 2022
An ICTP Virtual Meeting
Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) is a remote sensing method that is growing rapidly as a method of generating three-dimensional images in applications as diverse as climate science, archaeology, fisheries, and autonomous vehicle navigation.
A lidar instrument must be designed with careful consideration of the application-driven needs, but this design is based on some common optical principles. This will be a forum where these principles are taught and discussed, along with representative applications drawn from current research and industry activities.
The college will be entirely virtual and abbreviated so that it is reasonably accessible over a wide range of time zones. In addition to lidar there will be special topics related to the UNESCO International Day of Light touching on best practices in outreach, training and research.
Topics in Lidar:
Insect and Fish Lidar
Lidar for Autonomous Vehicles
Photon-Counting Compressive Lidar
