Elon Musk Is Right: LiDAR Is a Crutch (Sort of.)

Mr. Musk is right. Relying solely on LiDAR can steer autonomous vehicle companies into innovation cul-de-sacs.

LiDAR is enabling self-driving cars to become a reality by ensuring that they drive with the least amount of risk to other drivers or those around it. LiDAR is necessary for autonomous vehicles because it reduces the burden of real-time perception and prediction, which is not possible using AI and stereo-cameras alone.

LiDAR is the final sensor modality that is needed to make ADAS systems (and eventually full autonomy) work effectively in all conditions. LiDAR is more deterministic by nature, as it can detect and measure the distance to all objects. And with an agile LiDAR, such as AEye’s iDAR, this can be done incredibly fast with the added ability to classify objects and determine their velocity.

iDAR Sees Only What Matters

Only iDAR brings intelligence to the sensor layer. By fusing 1550 nanometer, solid-state agile LiDAR with a low-light HD camera, CV algorithms, and embedded AI - at the sensor - iDAR filters out the most important aspects of a given scene. With iDAR, the vehicle’s perception system can target only the salient 5% of data it needs to safely navigate. Watch how.

AEye Sets New Benchmark for LiDAR Range

Introducing 1KM AEye has set a new benchmark for LiDAR range. In performance specification tests monitored and validated by VSI Labs, AEye’s iDAR system acquired and tracked a truck at 1,000 meters – or one kilometer – five times the distance current LiDAR systems are able to detect! Watch now...
