The Requirements of Lidar in Autonomous Driving
Lidar plays an important role in autonomous driving. The 3d geometry information obtained from lidar makes it suitable for tasks such as object detection, localization, etc. I will showcase the autonomous driving system we built in FAW Nanjing and talks about the strengths and challenges of using Lidar as main sensor. In addition, I will talk about what Lidar can accomplish in L2-L4 driving and sensor level requirements for autonomous driving from OEM prospective.
