Many Jetson users choose lidars as their major sensors for localization and perception in autonomous solutions. Lidars describe the spatial environment around the vehicle as a collection of three-dimensional points known as a point cloud. Point clouds sample the surface of the surrounding objects in long range and high precision, which are well-suited for use…
