Forbes details why conventional, solid-state LiDAR systems won't be enough to cultivate the future of autonomous vehicles. Instead, what will catapult autonomous vehicles into the mainstream market is faster, smarter, detection systems, like AEye's iDAR, which fuses agile LiDAR with a high-resolution, low-light camera to replicate the advanced processes of the human visual cortex.
"AEye, has built a new kind of hybrid sensor...that allows the system to prioritize where it’s looking in order to give vehicles a more refined view of the world." – MIT Technology Review
In AEye's revolutionary iDAR system, LiDAR and camera work together to achieve better results through intelligent, selective scanning. Prioritizing, after all, is a key technique for human drivers.
