Phys.Org (17 May 2021) A LiDAR device the size of a finger now available

Hi All,

I wonder how a LiDAR device the size of a finger will affect the quality of data capture,price and size of cameras in our space.

Your thoughts?

I do not believe it is a true in current market conditions. It could be true 5-10 years ago but now there are a lot of OEM LiDARs that seem to be even better by specs than the one in BLK360 and they cost less than a $1000-5000

In fact in the shop below there are tons of them and only two costs more than $10000. But note that their range is from 200 to 250 meters while BLK360 is 30 meters.

Not sure about the size though in terms why it needs to be so small especially for autonomous vehicles. 2 fists stuck together is quite ok.
