I was looking guys of lidar's off axis test.
First off I love these guys and their passion.
But is the off axis test really valid/useful?
When I hear references to off axis detection I think of how far the leo might be off the .side of the road. Or the road comes around a bend.
But to do the testing they rotated the detector.
Rotating the receiver is not the same as moving the source off axis.
It may be useful and the results may correlate but I don't it's the same as real world off axis encounters.
