LIDAR scanners are critical components in systems for autonomous vehicles as well as adaptive cruise control, collision avoidance systems, traffic sign recognition, blind spot detection, and lane departure warning. None of these systems can function without a key component: their sensors – the “eyes” of the LIDAR system. But there are presently a number of competing sensors with differing capabilities.
