As the market adopts driver assist features such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), autonomous parking, and L2 piloted driving as the entrant point, Frost & Sullivan expects automakers to push L2+ features over next five years, with a forecast to reach over 11 million units by 2025. The need for a low cost, compact, and efficient mid- to long-range Lidar has launched with a range of competing technologies. This presentation will address the need for Lidar versus other sensing technologies, the various implementations of Lidar products, and the introduction of an innovative new type of Lidar solution that combines the best of various solutions into a unique one using MEMS Scanning Mirrors with infrared spatial modulation along with field of view (FOV) meta-surface expander.
