Luminar Technologies, Inc. is producing advanced sensor technologies for the autonomous vehicle industry. It built its LiDAR systems from scratch. That means the company engineered its own: lasers, receivers, chips, packaging and more, rather than incorporating off-the-shelf components. The company’s LiDARs give cars the ability to see obstacles ahead in much greater detail, and at much greater distances than any other systems on the market today. The LiDARs also work in inclement weather, through fog and dust.
