The applications of LIDAR are so broad that seem to be only limited by human imagination. In recent (and not so recent) years we have seen the constant consideration and deployment of LIDARs for distance measurements in agriculture, archaeology, automotive, geology, atmospheric monitoring, law enforcement, military, mining, astronomy,.. But every application has their own by their system integrators, with different degrees of difficulty and maturity. In particular, in the automotive industry, some OEMs envision to place LIDARs in headlights and taillights, bumpers, roof, and other places in the car, at low cost, high durability, low maintenance, high stability, etc. Each of these locations with different required specifications. The goal of this panel is to bring together different TIER1 suppliers and OEMs from different market segments and applications, and discuss the challenges and opportunities for the LIDAR supply chain.
