LiDAR – Now You See Me, Soon You Won’t!

As LiDAR matures into a critical sensor for ADAS and Autonomous Vehicles (AVs), balancing the styling aspects of vehicle integration with functionality is becoming increasingly important. Location matters, in addition to overall manufacturability, reliability, price, and durability considerations. In this sense, LiDAR is simply following in the footsteps of legacy sensors like radar, cameras, and ultrasonic. They were highly visible in early deployments, but are generally invisible today.
