This paper addresses the use of lidar in speed measurement devices and the potential timing quantization error resulting from its use. After describing the scientific principles behind lidar, a statistical model for the timing quantization error is presented and its use in selecting key timing parameter values is discussed. It is noted that these parameters must meet current model lidar speed measurement device performance standards established by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
