Baraja is a deep technology company that has reinvented LiDAR for self-driving vehicles. Our Spectrum-ScanTM platform uses patented technology to set new benchmarks for precision, range and reliability.

The limitations of legacy LiDAR systems stem from a single design challenge: the ability to point a laser in a wide field-of-view. While traditional systems rely on fragile rotating lasers and oscillating mirrors, we simply refract light through a prism to scan the environment, with no-moving-parts in the fast axis. This unique method allows us to deliver unprecedented range, precision and reliability in even the most extreme environments - meaning pointcloud data you can trust.

With billions being spent to solve fully autonomous driving, we believe our technology is the most viable approach to producing the data needed to usher in the future of autonomous mobility.

For the automotive industry, Laser Components manufacturers sensors for laser-based distance measurement (LIDAR) applications that are manufactured in high volume and in ISO-certified manufacturing facilities. The high power, short pulse laser diodes improve the distance resolution with matching high sensitivity avalanche photodiodes that detect even the smallest signal. We manufacture pulsed laser diodes and emitters: In order to achieve the distance resolution managed by modern time-of-flight ranging systems, shorter and shorter pulses need to be generated. The wavelength of choice for most safety scanning applications is 905 nm. For superior transmission through atmospheric aerosols and in eye-safe applications,1550 nm is recommended. We also manufacture avalanche photodiodes and receivers: silicon avalanche photodiodes (APDs), are meeting high sensitivity, low noise, and cost. They are amplifying very weak signals coming from the targets. In that way making detectors very highly sensitive to weak signals, at the same time keeping the noise low.
