LiDAR And Optical Filters – Helping Autonomous Vehicles See More Clearly

“What’s a ‘steering wheel’?”  At the present time this would be a very strange question to hear asked from anyone who has driven, ridden in, or even seen a car but in a couple of decades this may not seem so unusual.  The evolution of increasingly affordable and capable sensing and imaging systems combined with the desire to create safer, more efficient transportation systems is driving the development of autonomous vehicles (pun intended).  LiDAR is a key technology that will eventually help carry this growth through to “Level 5” autonomy --> no steering wheels, no brake pedals, no human intervention in driving.
