Lidar Performance Benchmarking Technical Discussion
24 April 2024 • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT | Prince George Exhibition Hall, Industry Stage 
Today there are no vendor-independent standards for automotive lidar performance, such as range, resolution, accuracy, field of view, etc. Attend this discussion to learn about and contribute to field testing of multiple lidar systems on an identical range. Join this working group to discuss lessons learned in the lidar performance benchmarking process and explore ways to improve the lidar performance tests in the future.
