Apple Will Use Lidar to Create Competitive Advantage

Apple will use LiDAR this year as a compelling story for iPad Pro, and we expect, iPhone 12 later this year. LiDAR works similarly to the front-facing TrueDepth sensor, but rather than being optimized for the face, it allows users … Continue reading

Vegetation Classification Using Lidar and Hyperspectral

Abstract: The sparse canopy cover and large contribution of bright background soil, along with the heterogeneous vegetation types in close proximity, are common challenges for dryland vegetation classification with remote sensing. Consequently, the results of a single classification algorithm or … Continue reading
