But the revelation came not from a PR release, but a science journal. Two Apple scientists published a paper in the online journal arXiv detailing Apple’s research into LiDAR technology, Reuters reports. Current self-driving-car tech uses a combination of regular cameras and LiDAR to detect other objects. The problem with existing LiDAR tech is it reads objects in a low resolution. Now the Apple scientists think they’ve found a way to increase the ability of LiDAR to sense objects more clearly, leading to the hope that fewer LiDAR sensors and cameras could be used on self-driving cars in the future.
