Abstract
The conventional phase coded lidar systems require the collection of every returned laser pulse and are restricted in range resolution by sampling frequency and subpulse width. A phase coded lidar system with high range resolution is proposed with the accumulated m-sequence acquisition method by utilizing detector characteristics for signal detection. The detector accumulates kN-1 or kN+1 bits of the emitted laser sequence to deduce the a single bit of the sequence. The indoor experiment achieved 2 us resolution with the sampling period of 28 and 32 us by employing a 15-bit m-sequence. This method achieves the acquisition of m-sequence with narrow subpulse width whereas the sampling frequency is kept low. The experiment results showed an approach to implement the phase coded imaging lidar into practical application.
