LiDAR Design for Manufacturing

Design for Manufacturing Considerations for Ubiquitous Deployment of Low-Cost LiDAR It has become widely accepted that LiDAR sensors will be an indispensable part of a sensor suite that will enable vehicular autonomy in the future. However, sensor costs remain very high and prevent the ubiquitous adoption of LiDAR sensors. Bringing knowledge and expertise in Cost Engineering and Design for Manufacturing from the HDD space into the LiDAR space can accelerate the largescale deployment of LiDAR sensors. In this talk, some of the key manufacturing technologies will be highlighted.
