Alibaba's autopilot upgrade gives LiDAR recognition more than 3x improvement

DAMO Academy, Alibaba’s research and innovation institute, today announced that its sensing algorithm has enabled high-beam simulation of low-wire-beam LiDAR. This indirectly increases the LiDAR wiring harness by a factor of three or more, enabling low-cost generic LiDAR to replace high-cost radar, it said.
