In a recent tech spotlight ( LiDAR Processing on FPGA SoCs in ADAS Systems ), we discussed the LiDAR sensor data processing technology behind advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in autonomoous vehicles. If you haven't read the spotlight article, I encourage you to do so. I think the innovation in the automotive and transportation industries is one of the most exciting areas of technology and product development today. But there are some challenges. The widespread deployment of autonomous vehicles depends not only on the technology to make it a reality, but also the enactment of necessary governmental legislation, infrastructure to support it, and consumers that want to buy it. When will autonomous vehicles will be available to individuals on a wide scale is still up in the air. What are the biggest challenges for making it happen?
