“LiDAR, or light detection and ranging, is an emerging technology which is witnessing increased adoption across all the sectors. This is primarily due to the capability of this technology to produce highly precise images for 3D elevation modeling of terrains and urban establishments. Infrastructure projects are becoming more and more complex and require detailed planning and design. The LiDAR technology is very effective in such projects in achieving the desired levels of accuracy and therefore their adoption is increasing in engineering and infrastructure development applications.
LiDAR systems were primarily used for geospatial surveying of terrestrial surfaces and coastlines and also for meteorology. Recent technological developments have led to introduce new market segments for LiDAR including urban planning, law enforcement, and in the automotive sector. The use of LiDAR sensors in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in high-end vehicles and for the testing and development of autonomous car is leading to the introduction of affordable devices like the breakthrough âPuckâ introduced by Velodyne LiDAR (U.S.).
