The automotive industry remains divided on the sensor configuration needed to support autonomous driving. Tesla is resolute that cameras and radar systems will be sufficient, yet both systems have their shortcomings. Harman believes safe automated and autonomous driving can only be achieved by combining LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), radar and cameras. We caught up with Robert Kempf, Harman's vice president in ADAS/automated driving, on how it's overcoming today's LiDAR issues with recently-launched solid-state LiDAR technology and why the merging of this data in the ECU architecture is key to its success.
