“Thoughts on the Road to Safer Driving” Jay Wee

“Thoughts on the Road to Safer Driving” Jay Wee

At Aerostar, our vision and mission was to create a technology that would revolutionize the future of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and serve as a benchmark for autonomous driving.  Throughout our efforts in the developmental phase, we asked ourselves what our approach would be in our ADAS solution and how it would be beneficial for the automotive market. The answer was clear –...

Test platform and the stress of travel: the origin of the “PizzaBox” name

The TRL-4 prototype for the LIDAR sensor was intended for laboratory tests only.  It is assembled from a bunch of custom and eval boards, and a lot of long wires. The connectors (zillions of them, it seems), were never intended to withstand the stress of travel and of multiple reassemblies and dissasemblies that a roadshow implies. It is something we manipulate with great caution. Then,  back in...

“Darth Vader”: Codenames and team input

“Darth Vader”: Codenames and team input

The first analogies have been talked about during the final stages of the mechanical design, and then when the final 3D renderings were received. Now, the first physical housings for Aerostar’s next generation automotive LIDAR sensor just got in (during the Christmas vacations). The whole thing does indeed look like Darth Vader. The name stuck with the team.  “Darth Vader” is...
