    99% ? That's pretty incredible.

    This is a very interesting news item, and some insight can be gained by way of the Cruise CEO's brief article on medium '[...] by collapsing the entire sensor down to a single chip, we’ll reduce the cost of each LIDAR on our self-driving cars by 99%.":

    Might be a 99% reduction on GM vehicles. Not sure that will be passed along to competitors.

    99% of what though? I have the same problem with battery advancements projections too. They say they will improve things by x% but don't give the baseline, so it's worthless.

    Personally, I suspect that Time of Flight cameras will obsolete LIDAR.
