3D-LiDAR will contribute to realizing development of highly reliable autonomous driving suitable for various road environments around the world because it can detect various road surfaces and obstacles in front of the vehicle and around the vehicle essential for autonomous driving with wide viewing angle and high resolution.

Through this approach, we will contribute to the establishment of autonomous driving technology and will strive to realize a safe and secure mobility society.

We exhibited the above "3D-LiDAR" at "GTC Japan 2018" held at Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa International Convention Center Pamir on September 13 (Thursday) and 14 (Fri) 2018.
At the venue, you can see a demonstration using "NVIDIA DRIVE".
