The LiDAR opportunity

What is LiDAR and how can it be used to unlock advanced safety and autonomous driving capabilities?

Light detection and ranging, or LiDAR for short, is a sensing method that uses laser light pulses to illuminate a scene and then calculates the time it takes for reflected light to return to the LiDAR device. In this report, we take a deep-dive look at LiDAR and how this technology can be used to unlock advanced safety and autonomous driving capabilities, as well as for various non-automotive applications.
