LiDAR has made the news in recent months as part of various high-profile archeological and geological projects. From discovering Mayan ruins to mapping our coastal seashores, LiDAR is the tool of choice. The technology also plays a critical role in autonomous vehicles, security systems and agriculture. LiDAR, shorthand for Light Detection and Ranging, may also prove useful in common lighting applications including potential use as a long-range occupancy detector to control outdoor lighting.
