After beingcrippled by the 2008 financial crisis,ithas risen from the ashes and commenced its own revolution. Indeed, for more than 4 years years the automotive industry has been discussing new mobility solutions based on autonomous vehicles, shared mobility, connectivity, and electrification. Among these four axes, autonomous vehicles (i.e. driverless vehicles and robotic vehicles) is the most disruptive technology. Indeed, with self-driving vehicles the road will be safer, the journey more comfortable, and traffic jams minimized. To achieve this goal, the industry is rapidly evolving. Driver assistance systems (ADAS) are today well-integrated, with partial automated driving already available and self-driving cars being tested in real-world environments. However, along with the trend towards self-driving come new technical challenges with regard to surroundsensors,actuators,andthevehicle’s electrical/electronicarchitecture. LiDAR (light detecting and ranging) appears to be the best solution for these challenges. The technology has already proven its accuracy and reliability in ADAS applications. Moreover, LiDAR’s increasing power and portability are being embraced as it is integrated into new, exciting functions like3Dmappingand car-surroundsensors. Today, LiDAR technologiesand new automotive applicationsare developingsimultaneously. Thus the LiDAR marketis linked to the development of ADAS and robotic vehicleapplications. Both domains show high growth rates and tremendous enthusiasm. Consequently, the LiDAR market is oneof the automotive industry‘s fastest-growing sectors, with an annual growth of 42%from2018 - 2028 expected by YoleDéveloppement. LiDAR for automotive - IP dynamics LiDAR-related patent activity began in the late ‘80s amongst Japanese automotive players. This first wave of IP players, composed of Japanese and European car manufacturers and suppliers, contributed to the development of LiDAR for ADAS applications. Since 2010, the IP landscape related to LiDAR for automotive has seen a strong increase. The swift development of autonomous vehicles has opened many opportunities, with the established/strongestIP players increasingly challenged by new pureplayers and international companies entering theIP landscape.
