  1. please contact me i have a serious question about your systems and lighting arrays in heavy traffic its for a schhool project thank you!!

  2. HI i have a serious question about the lighting array in your lidar systems, and how they function under heavy traffic of other AV cars.

  3. I am a retired engineer and was wondering…
    Some laser colors have a natural window in sea water and I was wondering why there’s no mapping of sea floors, or maybe even lake bottoms, with LIDAR.
    Has this ever been tried?
