The Automotive LIDAR conference is the only event in the world exclusively focused on automotive LIDAR technologies and applications. The conference's sessions will describe the various approaches to make a LIDAR system, as well as explain via physics and math the reasons to choose one approach over another. The event will also discuss the publicly disclosed methods from each of the known developers, their strengths and weaknesses, and how they likely they are to scale in manufacturability and cost. Further, the conference will provide overviews of marketplace projections and business trends. The material presented will enable attendees to make well-informed decisions regarding which LIDAR approaches are optimal for solving their challenges and requirements.
