Nissan follows Tesla’s lead and drops LIDAR from autonomous cars

Nissan follows Tesla’s lead and drops LIDAR from autonomous cars. It looks like cameras, sonar and radar are the future of self-driving cars.

Nissan follows Tesla’s lead and drops LIDAR from autonomous cars. Nissan has stepped away from using LIDAR in its self-driving car technologies in favour of using a camera-based approach like Tesla. The automaker stated that LIDAR — a laser-based radar system — is too expensive to use considering the minimal effect it has on driving, according to Teslarati.

This means that Nissan is instead using cutting edge camera, radar and sonar technology to pilot its autonomous cars. Nissan has shared a little bit of information about its self-driving tech. It’s planning on using a three-camera system that looks at the front and the sides of a vehicle. It’s going to use this along with the other sensors to develop 3D maps, according to Teslarati.

While this isn’t a ton of info, it’s validating to see another manufacturer working on similar tech to Tesla since the American automaker plans to launch its fully self-driving technology by the middle of next year.

About the Author: Bernard Aybout

In the land of bytes and bits, a father of three sits, With a heart for tech and coding kits, in IT he never quits. At Magna's door, he took his stance, in Canada's wide expanse, At Karmax Heavy Stamping - Cosma's dance, he gave his career a chance. With a passion deep for teaching code, to the young minds he showed, The path where digital seeds are sowed, in critical thinking mode. But alas, not all was bright and fair, at Magna's lair, oh despair, Harassment, intimidation, a chilling air, made the workplace hard to bear. Management's maze and morale's dip, made our hero's spirit flip, In a demoralizing grip, his well-being began to slip. So he bid adieu to Magna's scene, from the division not so serene, Yet in tech, his interest keen, continues to inspire and convene.
