TECHNICAL EVENT 1-DAY VIRTUAL WORKSHOP
One of the key challenges for augmented reality is the development of ultra-compact, lightweight, low-power near-to-eye display solutions with good image quality. Laser Beam Scanning (LBS) technologies can meet these key requirements and deliver form-factors that enable light weight, fashionable, all-day wearable AR smart glasses with the ability to scale resolution and field-of-view (FoV).
In this workshop we will highlight the key technologies and solutions behind LBS that enable AR smart glasses, as well as more complex mixed reality HMD devices, including MEMS Micromirror scanners systems, laser diode modules, optics, opto-electronics, photonics, waveguides and LBS systems design, integration and manufacturing considerations.
To facilitate the development of LBS based AR devices, and to accelerate time-to-market for end products, the recently announced LaSAR Alliance was created to further these objectives. Several of the speakers represent companies that are part of this growing Alliance and we will discuss aspects related to this open organization and how companies can join and participate in this Alliance.
