I received quite a bit of feedback on a recent blog post concerning the issue of hacking LiDAR systems,
particularly those that could be guiding a driverless vehicle. As you can see, the tone of my
post was on the negative side, but most of the comments pointed to the positive side of hacking,
such as the fact that hacks can reveal weaknesses in the system that once identified can then be
addressed before they become major problems. Good point. I guess it's the term itself that points
people in the wrong direction.
Bill Gutelius attended the recent AUVSI Unmanned Systems 2013
in Washington, DC. His report highlights
the investment that is taking place in this exploding industry.

Thoughts from AUVSI 2013
While I was unable to make it in time for the first day, I did manage to attend the entire
second day through to the end of AUVSI 2013 on the 15th. I spent almost my entire 3 days talking
to folks on the exhibition floor, because that?s where the cool ?toys? are. Of course, of
interest to LIDAR News readers, there were well-known industry players: Teledyne (Optech),
Riegl, Trimble, Neptec, MDL, LTI, Novatel, Advanced Scientific ...

What?s the Point with
Survey Control?: Ted Mort ? O.K., before I get started I just want to make sure
everyone knows that I come from a Civil/Survey background and deeply respect the profession. In
fact, I recommend control be provided by a licensed surveyor prior to any renovation or new
building project. However, after working with numerous trades ...
Fire!: Jeff Fagerman ? If you have teenagers or follow recent movies, then
you should recognize that title, Catching Fire, by Suzanne Collins, is the second book in
her trilogy: The Hunger Games. The movie version will be released later this year. And
just what in the world does this have to do with LiDAR? Not much at all really, except for the
question that it sparks ...
