BMW to use solid-state LiDAR for its self-driving cars

Autonomous driving technology will be present in future BMW models , and the automaker will make use of solid-state LiDAR sensors to increase the abilities of these systems. This is according to automotive supplier Magna and Innoviz Technologies, with both companies set to supply the BMW Group with solid-state LiDAR sensors. Traditional LiDAR sensors use a spinning mechanism to cast lasers in a circular pattern to provide autonomous driving systems with 360 degrees of coverage. This allows the system to identify potential obstacles in the environment and where the car is in relation to them. The downside here is these sensors are pretty bulky and relative expensive. Innoviz’s sensor, the InnovizOne, attempts to remedy these issues by providing a more compact and cheaper solution. Moving parts are still present in the unit, but the sensor uses micro-electromechanical system...
