LiDAR and the New Ford Fusion

new-Ford-Fusion-Hybrid-automated-research-vehicleIn case you think that LiDAR is not going to become as widely used as GPS or smart phones than this point cloud generated by the LiDAR on the new Ford Fusion may cause you to rethink your position. In this article in Clean Technica Tina Casey documents the research that Ford is doing with LiDAR sensors as part of the move to automated driving. Good news for Velodyne, looks like they have four of their units on this test vehicle.

I wonder if the automobile manufacturers will buy or build these in the long run.
