LiDAR Technology Map

EETimes reporter Junko Yoshida publishes an article "Lidar Sweepstakes Draws 15 RFQs, But No Frontrunner."

"More than a dozen RFQs for lidars are reportedly flying around. Evidently, lidars are beginning to penetrate the ADAS market. Automotive industry observers, however, caution not to expect a single lidar supplier to win this sweepstakes.

“When we recently interviewed lidar companies, they told us that every OEM and Tier One has different requirements — demanding a specific field of view, distance and position to integrate lidars in a vehicle,” Pierrick Boulay, solid state lighting and lighting systems analyst at Yole Développement, told EE Times.

Yole put FMCW in the R&D bin, calling it “TBD” — to be determined. Boulay said “We do not expect to see FMCW lidars before 2025.” Last year, Waymo talked about FMCW for its future home-grown lidars. Mobileye, most prominently, discussed FMCW early this year, describing it as its choice for lidars under development for fully autonomous vehicles."
