They're hoping for a deluge of reporting, with an eruption of investor support, and cancer-like rates of growth!

I wonder how cheap it is.

LiDAR is very expensive. It's also an excellent system for measuring distance, much better than nearly anything else we have, definitely more than just a couple of normal cameras.

As one of the layers of a machine vision system it really makes a lot of things much more possible. Nearly all the deaths in Tesla autopilot cars would be avoided by having a ranging indicator like LiDAR on top of their vision system.

The problem is it's so expensive it's not reasonable to put one on every car yet.
