IDTechEx Autonomous Sensor Suite Summary - 2022
In general, three primary sensors are associated with autonomous driving: cameras, radars and LiDARs. There are some examples of companies choosing not to use one of these sensor types, e.g. Tesla opting for a camera only solution, however, these are very much exceptions that prove the rule. For high levels of autonomy, operating in all weather conditions, all three sensors are recommended for covering all necessary tasks.
