Performance + Versatility
Baraja's highly versatile, modular design, provides choice and flexibility when making tricky performance and packaging decisions. Spectrum-Scan LiDAR offers new ways to integrate LiDAR into vehicles.
Configurable Sensor Suite
Your LiDAR needs are different, so don’t compromise. Baraja’s LiDAR is modular, meaning you can mix-and-match sensors to suit your needs.
Key to Spectrum-Scan LiDAR technology, the Sensorheads are Baraja-speak for the scanning optics: they relay the light from the Engine out into the world and back again. Acting like a prism, the Sensorheads harness high-school physics to direct light of different wavelengths in different directions (see our Spectrum-Scan explainer here).
Reliability. By Design.
Vehicles serve up the toughest environments. Why make it tougher by operating sensitive electronics and photonics at the edge of the vehicle? Baraja’s Sensorheads are mounted externally, away from the main LiDAR engine, which is protected inside the vehicle. The Sensorheads are simple, made of prism-like glass, while the Engine contains all the complex electronics and photonics. This discrete, modular architecture maximizes robustness to temperature, shock and vibration and we have reliability test results to prove it.
The Baraja LiDAR Engine is the central brain-box of the system. It contains all the smarts: both electronics and photonics.
One Engine supports up to four Sensorheads for full 360° coverage, and the optic fiber interconnects can be tens of meters long, allowing Baraja LiDAR to scale from compact cars, to trucks and even road infrastructure.
The Engine is designed to be housed at the center of the vehicle, maximizing robustness and avoiding the replication of cost and complexity at each corner of the vehicle.
