Preview: EPIC Meeting on LIDAR for Automotive

Lidar is the driver of autonomous cars … or not. What we can be sure about is that the lidar demands in terms of size, price and reliability by the automotive industry, new developments in photonics need to be made. The vision of the automotive industry is to place idarss in headlights and taillights, bumpers, roof, and other places in the car, at low cost, high durability, low maintenance, high stability, etc. Each of these locations with different required specifications.
