Voyant Photonics Unveils Blue: Next-Generation FMCW Imaging LiDAR Sensor for Pre-Order

New York City, March 3, 2024 – Voyant Photonics, a leading innovator in sensor technology, announces the availability for pre-orders of their groundbreaking product, Blue. Designed to revolutionize machine perception for a range of industries, Blue sets a new standard for performance, size, and cost in the field of LiDAR technology.

Blue introduces a paradigm shift in 4D point cloud data acquisition. Leveraging Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) technology, Blue delivers high-fidelity point cloud data with unparalleled precision and accuracy. Equipped with simultaneous range, velocity, and reflectance measurements at every point, Blue empowers advanced machine perception capabilities, enabling industries to unlock new levels of efficiency and productivity.

“At Voyant Photonics, we are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of LiDAR technology to create solutions that empower industries,” said Dr. Chris Phare, co-founder of Voyant Photonics. “Blue is the product of years of research and innovation.  It delivers some of the highest-quality point cloud data available at a price unheard of for LiDAR sensors.”

Blue boasts an array of features that redefine what’s possible with LiDAR technology:




Blue achieves its exceptional performance and affordability by integrating optics on a LiDAR photonic integrated circuit (PIC). This highly integrated semiconductor chip contains thousands of optical and electrical components, including solid-state  beam steering. “Voyant is unique in perfecting highly integrated photonic chips for LiDAR.  In comparison, everyone else is still using vacuum tubes, not integrated circuits,“ said co-founder Dr. Steven Miller.
