Myths about LiDAR

Myths about LiDAR Sensor Debunked – Part 1

LiDAR technology has been a revelation for many sensor-based applications but has also been the focus of many myths and false presumptions. We have rounded up the most common myths and debunked them in this two-part blog series.

What applications are enabled by defining a zone in a point cloud?

LiDAR enables applications in a wide variety of fields – we often write that. But what do these applications actually look like? We present five different possible applications based on a specific software feature.

It won’t work without LiDAR!

Since Elon Musk claimed that LiDAR is not needed for autonomous driving, there has been a very lively discussion in the industry. Will it work without LiDARs? Are cameras enough to safely bring autonomous driving onto the streets?
