Having a little electronics background, I'm contemplating building my own IR accessory "headlight". There are no laws in FL (currently) regarding the utilisation of an IR light source.
The theory is simple: build a very bright IR light and place it right under my main headlight. Mount a switch near the handlebar to flick it on or off. Unlike the Blinder, this would not be a 'smart' system. I would have to keep it constantly on whenever I want to be protected. Next, it would not be smart enough to prevent jam codes. I believe the consumer products mimic the pulse-rate of the source as to stealthly confuse the Lidar gun. Mine would be more of a brute-force approach which means it would need to be ultra-bright. The concept is to over-exposed the LiDar's detection photo-transistor so that it can't see it's own reflection (hence overload light or popping a jam code).
I'm thinking along the lines of 12) Osrams - they operate in the 935nm range (peak) and consume 1 amp of power (that's very bright). LiDar operates at 904nm, but I'm sure it's IR photo-transistor is sensitive in a broader range. Plus the Osram is 935nm peak with +-50 nm wide. I also plan to supplement with 24) 200ma Opteks which run at 890nm +-25nm. Between the two it should be saturating the IR spectrum.
Any thoughts, ideas, tips on this?
