Solid State Sensors: Introduction

  • Sensors are devices that can sense or detect a physical property. Solid-state sensors are the sensors with no mobile parts. Sometimes these sensors are confused with transducers or actuators that are supposed to react depending on the sensor response. The signal processing unit controls the whole system between sensor and actuator.
  • While using a solid state sensor it is necessary to have the sensor device and the signal processing unit on the same chip because the signal processing unit in it can be built as a semiconductor device
  • Solid state sensors are the products designed in such a way that they can measure the physical property and sense them. This process leads to an electrical reaction that can be detected and magnified with electronics.

Increasing Application of Solid State LiDAR Sensors in Automotive Industry Driving Growth of the Market

  • Automotive LiDAR sensors are used to enhance a vehicle’s navigation capabilities by detection and avoidance of obstacles enroute. The Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) sensors are detection and survey systems to evaluate the nearness of an object. A LiDAR system principally consists of a laser, a scanner, and a specialized GPS receiver. An optical pulse is created by the laser, which is radiated and transmitted toward the target.  
  • The time taken by the light pulse to bounce back and reach the receiver is measured (utilizing the speed of light) and thus the distance of the target is calculated. The technology has emerged as the main pillar for the vision of autonomous cars as it gives a 3D mapping of the vehicles surroundings. This enable a safe navigation system for the vehicles. Hence factors such as enhancing a vehicle’s navigation capabilities is driving the solid state sensors market.

Rise in Demand for Solid State Sensors and Product Launches

  • In January 2019, Innoviz Technologies and HARMAN International signed a partnership agreement to supply Innoviz’s high-performing, solid-state, and mass-producible LiDAR solutions to OEMs globally.
  • In May 2019, AMS, ZF Friedrichshafen AG, and Ibeo Automotive Systems GmbH announced a partnership to combine capabilities of solid state LiDAR sensors in the automotive industry. The three companies will partner on joint R&D efforts to ensure that this new technology can be quickly and safely adopted by 2021.
