Lidar, a technology previously associated with fully autonomous driving, is taking an increasingly important role in vehicle safety in ADAS. In fact, consumer vehicles can start benefiting from lidar today, with their superior perception capabilities proven to help significantly reduce both the frequency and severity of accidents.
Choices of lidar technologies can be evaluated based on how their key functions (transmission, detection, imaging) are achieved and how they balance the three key pillars for mass-market deployment — namely, performance, reliability and cost.
The cost of lidar sensors has been a hot topic for years. In this article, we attempt to provide some useful context to understand lidar pricing and the factors that impact it the most.
Tech for Good
Dr. Jun Pei, CEO and co-founder of Cepton, discusses protecting privacy and minimizing AI bias in an automated world, and why lidar technology might hold the key.
As consumers are increasingly concerned about their data privacy, the need for data protection-compliant surveillance technologies is growing. Lidar offers a revolutionary solution to enable high-accuracy monitoring without capturing biometric data.

Second in a series on lidar pricing, that delves into the role of the market in constraining pricing and the tradeoff between performance expectations and cost.
First in a series of blogs, that provides some useful context to understand lidar pricing and the factors that impact it the most.
In a world increasingly wary of excessive surveillance, the ideal crowd analytics solution would need to be sensitive to privacy concerns. The good news is that such an ideal technology already exists today – it is called smart lidar.
Autonomous Vehicle International
Due to common misconceptions, lidar sometimes gets left out of the conversation about the future of automobiles, but Cepton believes lidar is a pivotal sensor in enabling safe autonomy.
What is lidar technology? How can the facilities management sector leverage it to achieve safe operations? How do lidar-based solutions work to make spaces smarter and safer?
