Lidar by the Numbers

Why lidar?

Radar and lidar are two technologies that appear in current driver-assistance hardware. Autonomous driver assistance systems increase a driver’s awareness of surrounding factors that present safety risks. Both work on the principle of measuring the “time-of-flight” of an electromagnetic wave from the moment it leaves the source to the moment the wave is detected by the sensor, after having reflected from any objects in the foreground.
