Lidar Sensor onto Single Chip

“At MIT’s Photonic Microsystems Group, the authors are developing a lidar-on-a-chip system that is smaller than a dime, has no moving parts, and could be mass produced at a very low cost to be used in self-driving cars, drones, and robots.”

This technology is certainly going to change robotics. See more details on this link
