Takeaways

  1. LiDAR and RADAR are remote sensing devices that use light waves and radio waves respectively to detect objects. They use the interval between the time the waves are transmitted and the time the wave reflected from the object is received.
  2. Light waves have better precision and accuracy compared to RADAR. However, RADAR sensors are more robust. It performs well in bad weather when LiDAR often fails and has a longer range.
  3. RADAR systems are more affordable in comparison to LiDAR sensors. However, this might change as many companies continue to develop solid-state LiDARS at a lower price range.
