The successful suppression of interfering light sources (headlamps, street lamps or sunlight for example) developed through our technology and the minimisation of atmosphe- ric interferences are essential in many situations to obtain evidence-worthy images. For the public space and for short-range requirements, exclusively eye-safe lasers of the laser class 1 are used. For particular tasks or for long-range setups, lasers of the laser class 4 (not eye-safe) can also be used, as they allow a longer monitoring range of up to 2-3 km. The MODAR-HDR is optimally equipped for use in vehicles (Mercedes Sprinter, VW Crafter, etc.) through the pan-tilt                                                                    Acquisition from approx. 20 m distance                    Acquisition from approx. 400 m distance 16                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               17
