Hesai's Pandar128 lidar unit
Chinese firm Hesai Photonics Technology's "Pandar128" lidar sensor is an example of the increased global competition in the sector. Currently topography and mapping applications dominate in terms of commercial deployments, but that is expected to change as the technology makes serious inroads into the automotive sector. Hesai recently signed a cross-licensing deal with Velodyne, settling a pending patent dispute initiated by the US firm. Photo: Hesai Technology
