LiDAR - future technology for autonomous vehicles

Whitepaper Cover: intelli

Automotive LiDAR sensors (Light Detection and Ranging) are future core technologies, as they enable autonomous cars to see by illuminating targets with light and lasers.

Self-driving cars are poised to revolutionize the transportation industry. At the heart of autonomous technology is LiDAR (light detection and ranging), a vehicle vision system that measures distance by illuminating a target using light and lasers as its primary sensor; automotive LiDAR sensors are what allow driverless cars to see. The size of the LiDAR market will presumably increase from USD 844 million in 2019 to USD 2,273 million in 2024. Some researchers claim that, without LiDAR’s capabilities, self-driving vehicles could not progress much further than what the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) terms autonomy level 3 abilities.
Numerous manufacturers have integrated or invested in LiDAR. This eBook provides an in-depth description of LiDAR technology and its applications. It also lists the leading LiDAR companies worldwide and looks at what vehicle manufacturers have invested in or integrated LiDAR. Furthermore, this eBook offers insights into the direction in which the automotive LiDAR industry is heading.
Apart from going through the basics of LiDAR, the eBook "LiDAR - Future technology for autonomous vehicles" provides:
  • Why LiDAR is superior to other technologies.
  • LiDAR is getting cheaper—but it’s still too expensive for production vehicles.
  • Top LiDAR companies in the automotive industry.
  • Snapshot: Japanese LiDAR supplier Pioneer.
  • Looking ahead – where is the automotive LiDAR industry heading?
