This MEMS Scanning Mirror Could Solve LiDAR’s Expensive Autonomous Vehicle Challenges

Tech Briefs Author Woodrow Bellamy interviewed Omnitron Sensors Co-founder & CEO Eric Aguilar about the evolution of LiDAR sensors in autonomous navigation systems. Eric reveals how long-standing inadequacies in LiDAR sensors–from fragility and performance issues to high cost–have prevented LiDAR sensors from meeting the rigorous demands of the automotive industry. Until now. Omnitron’s new LiDAR sensor solves the problems that have limited LiDAR. Read the article.
