Pulse repetition rate variation* = 0.1 % §2.2.12
Low supply voltage† = 10.8 V §2.8
Horizontal functional beamwidth = 5 mrad §2.6.3
Vertical functional beamwidth = 5 mrad § 2.6.3
Display readability Easily readable when used as intended §2.10.1
Maximum low speed 16 km/h (10 mph) §2.10.5.1
Minimum high speed 320 km/h (200 mph) §2.10.5.2
Speed accuracy +2 km/h, -3 km/h (+1 mph, -2 mph) §2.11
Speed error trapping Periodic sawtooth perturbation: 200 ms, 1.52 m (5 ft) peak §2.11.2
Long Range 300 m (1,000 ft) minimum §2.5

Vehicle Determination Documented with a recorded image (or images) §2.16

* Not a functional requirement, but relates to the present limitations of the test instrumentation, in particular the target speed simulator The manufacturer may be required to provide test equipment (§2.1) if these specifications are exceeded.

† Applicable for lidar units that can be powered from a nominal 12 V automotive system. Self-powered units have a different minimum specification for low supply voltage (§2.8).
