The Power of LiDAR in an Automation Driven World.

Automation is paving the future for mobility, infrastructure, robotics, logistics and manufacturing at a rapid pace. At the forefront of the automation evolution is laser imaging, detection and ranging (LiDAR) sensors. The use of LiDAR is a method for measuring distances using laser based sensors. Differences in laser return times and wavelengths enable digital 3-D representations of the world around the sensor. The use of LiDAR technology is influencing technology decisions of companies, smart cities and governments, due to the breadth and accuracy of information it provides.
