Spirent expands Paignton’s high-tech research laboratories

By Zenobia Hegde

Spirent Communications plc., the provider in GPS and other Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) testing solutions, announced the opening of new research laboratories to develop systems to be used in future devices and applications.

The research space has been created to provide increased development capacity for test systems that can evaluate the performance of multiple sensors (sensor fusion) in new applications such as autonomous vehicles and emerging positioning techniques that use multiple signals such as Wi-Fi, RADAR, LIDAR and vision, in addition to GNSS.

“Very few people realise that many of the high-tech devices we use every day have been tested by systems from Spirent in Paignton” said Martin Foulger, general manager of Spirent’s Positioning Business Unit. “Our systems are widely used to test smartphones, infotainment systems in cars, fitness bands, drones, and many more devices in addition to high-end applications such as aircraft and space vehicles. This expansion of our research facilities enables us to lead the development of test solutions for next-generation systems and maintain our global leadership position.”

Martin Foulger

“Seeing a company like Spirent working in space navigation, very much part of our future world, expanding its UK facilities is very exciting as the UK Space Agency works with industry to capture 10% of the global space market by 2030,” said David Southwood.

The new research laboratories were formally opened by professor David Southwood, chair of the UK Space Agency’s Steering Committee, and will increase total laboratory space at the Paignton facility by more than 50%.

As well as supporting next-generation research, the new laboratories will also enable the development of test systems to make GPS and other GNSS receivers more resilient to interference – a growing problem, especially as positioning, navigation and timing features are embedded in a myriad of applications.

“Over time the additional laboratory space will enable Spirent to recruit more staff and increase its contribution to the local community,” said Caroline Lee, Human Resources director for Spirent. “The company is already very active in encouraging students to pursue STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and mathematics, so the expanded facilities will help us to offer more opportunities in these areas.”

Osram Lasers promote adoption of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles

By Zenobia Hegde

At this year’s North American International Auto Show’s AutoMobili-D 2018, Osram Opto Semiconductors is demonstrating how its high-power infrared pulse lasers are helping speed the adoption of autonomous vehicles and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

AutoMobili-D is a dedicated expo focused on the rapidly evolving global automotive and mobility landscapes. Attendees can experience Osram’s highly efficient 905 nm lasers in action in booth #AD14 at AutoMobili-D from January 14 to January 21.

Pulse laser diodes from Osram Opto Semiconductors have been featured in cars for more than 10 years for time-of-flight (TOF) measurements in adaptive cruise control (ACC) systems and automatic braking systems.

At AutoMobili-D, Osram will showcase its laser and LEDs in a number of innovative applications for autonomous vehicles and ADAS, including:

An industry-first long range infrared 4D camera concept from Vergence Automation uses 190 Osram infrared LEDs. 4D imaging, when applied to autonomous vehicle use, will be a boon to computer vision, machine learning, and deep learning.
The GazeT Driver Monitoring Global Shutter Image Sensor Demo System from ON Semiconductor uses Osram’s 940 nm infrared LEDs.

Rajeev Thakur

Osram lasers dedicated to LIDAR applications are based on the company’s extremely efficient, high-power infrared pulse laser with 905 nm wavelength. The laser’s short pulse length allows systems operating at high optical power levels to realise large detection ranges, while still being safe for the naked eye.

“Osram is pleased to be working with leading companies to enable widespread adoption of autonomous vehicles and ADAS, which will change the future of driving,” said Rajeev Thakur, regional marketing manager at Osram Opto Semiconductors. “Joining forces with companies like Vergence Automation and ON Semiconductor is a testament to Osram’s leadership in the development and future of autonomous vehicles.”

“Osram is a great technology partner for developing our 4D camera that utilises a patented 4D pixel to perform 3D image creation,” said Jamie Retterath, chief product officer at Vergence. “The 4D pixel has the potential to displace TOF for all future 3D imaging applications.”
