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.
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.
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.
