Executive Forum on LiDAR for Automotive – The hot topic

On sept. 5th Yole Développement (Yole) and the China International Optoelectronics Exhibition (CIOE) organized the second edition of the Executive Forum on LiDAR for Automotive.

Gathering more than 140 attendees, covering the whole supply chain of the LiDAR for Automotive industry, the forum included presentations from key players: Valeo, Innoviz Technologies, TriOptics, First Sensor, the chinese company RoboSense LiDAR, Yole Développement and System Plus Consulting.

It was the opportunity to better understand the LiDAR industry and its related applications.
Indeed, the LiDAR market is on track for fast growth, driven by robotic vehicles. The massive investments noticed show high expectations for autonomous driving.
Will other sensors be able to compete with LiDAR?

Waymo has a fleet of more than 600 vehicles today,” comments Alexis Debray, PhD. Technology & Market Analyst at Yole.“Several announcements have been made about increasing this number up to 82,000 vehicles using Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans and Jaguar I-Pace SUVs.

LiDAR adoption is so on track and other carmakers have announced or are expected to integrate this technology in future vehicles”, confirms Pierrick Boulay, Technology & Market Analyst at Yole. BMW with its partnership with Innoviz, for example is part of them.

An embedded rotating mirror deflects the beam emitted by a high-power laser diode through an emitting lens and receives the returned reflections through a condenser lens”, explains Sylvain Hallereau, Project Manager in charge of costing analyses at System Plus Consulting. “A three-element avalanche photodiode array then captures the reflections. ToF’s measurement of the travel time of this pulse enables the system to determine the distance from the obstacle.

A special thanks to the speakers, the moderator and the attendees to make it a success this year again!
