Title: Comparison of Radar and Lidar Sensors for Autonomous Vehicles - Performance and Market Trends

Date: August 18, 2021

Time: 11:30am PT / 2:30pm ET

Presented by: Dr. Amarpal Khanna, Consultant, APS Consulting

Radar and LiDAR sensors are the key sensors for the future autonomous vehicles enabling the detection of vehicles, people and other moving or fixed objects around the vehicle. Recent advances in these fields have significantly improved their performance and features. This talk will discuss the technologies used and applications of these sensors for self-driving-vehicles (SDV).

Radar is a more mature option for the autonomous vehicles, while LiDAR represents a newer option offering higher resolution, accuracy, and imaging quality. A comparison between the two sensors as well as potential complementation will be discussed.

The technology as well as market landscape of this field is changing. However there remain significant challenges ahead which need to be handled in a timely and cost-effective manner. This talk will cover some of these challenges and present market trends for both options.
