Market USP Exclusively Encompassed:
LiDAR Market Drivers
Automotive OEMs choose sensing technologies that will enable ADAS and automated driving features. The LiDAR uses in vehicles are growing to enable these more advanced processes. LiDAR helps vehicles identify objects on or near the roadway to avoid collisions with pedestrians, cyclists, animals and other vehicles with the ability to real-time map 360° view.

As vehicles become more intelligent, LiDAR has become an indispensable component in self-driving technology and safety features, allowing vehicles to control driving speed. Therefore the market is estimated to witness high revenue volumes in the very near future.

Municipal Corporations use LiDAR technology to survey properties required for the property tax collection. The LiDAR survey of properties enables video recording with a 360-degree panoramic view, which helps municipalities to identify the un-assessed properties in their jurisdiction. LiDAR-based technology based on Geographic Information System (GIS mapping) helps get the right information about properties and improves the financial position of the corporation.

3D LiDAR is used in autonomous vehicles (AVs) and robotics applications. Most 3D LiDAR systems use a time-of-flight (ToF) principle to interpret the distance of objects from the source. The resulting data from 3D LiDAR is an environmental map in only three dimensions, i.e., X, Y, and Z.

Automated or robotic driving needs an accurate three-dimensional model of the world around them. The iconic spinning LiDARs uses laser light pulses to gather depth information. Robo-taxis are gradually giving way to smaller and cheaper solid-state devices. However, LiDARs remain huge, power-hungry, and expensive for all high-end applications.
