Differences between the Lidar Systems and Depth Camera

Image source: extremetech.com Lidar systems and depth cameras have become part of today’s depth-sensors in the digital market. The sensors supplement the current monocular RGB images by providing per-pixel depth information of the target objects. The depth- sensors accurately measure the distance and wavelength of a target object and return a 3D representation. Although the…
