Partners Integrate LiDAR Sensors In Vehicle Windshields

(XenomatiX and AGC)

XenomatiX and AGC are partnering to address the growing demand for autonomous vehicles. Jointly, they have developed a windshield-mounted LiDAR system enabling self-driving cars to move from a prototype look and feel to a complete consumer design aspect. Exactly what does that mean?
