On-Device Motion Detection Minimizes LiDAR Data Transfer

LiDAR generates high accuracy point clouds and acts as a building block for many technologies. But processing and storing the large amount of data generated has always been a big challenge. This blog post will uncover the on-device motion detection through background subtraction and explain how it helps in reducing the total data.
