Lidar can detect objects 1000 meters in the rain

Lidar vendor AEye Inc. has tested its sensors to measure obstacles 1,000 meters in the rain, behind windshield glass.

The test was performed at the American Center for Mobility test track in Ypsilanti, Michigan, and the results were verified by automotive vehicle researcher VSI Labs.

The test indicated that not only could lidar sense objects from extremely far away, but it can also do so during adverse weather conditions and behind a surface, in this case a windshield.
