Since the last eNewsletter I have returned from Hexagon Live (and alive) in Las Vegas plus
another short trip back to Orlando, FL to present a paper at the ASCE Transportation and Development Institute. This was
the first public announcement of the Learn Mobile
LiDAR website which our TRB team has been working on for the past 9 months. Please have a
look and pass the word as I think you are going to find this an extremely valuable educational
resource concerning the use of mobile LiDAR for transportation applications and beyond.
For a glimpse into the future, be sure to read David Abell's article on the use of LiDAR to
support autonomous vehicles now being pushed by the insurance companies and car makers. This is
going to happen, and sooner than you may think.

New Technologies Changing the Game
for LiDAR industry
We are in the midst of one of the most exciting periods of technology advances in a
generation -- the emergence of vehicles that are aware of the driving environment, react and
control themselves and, ultimately, operate autonomously. Recent developments in the LiDAR space,
such as TriLumina's powerful and flexible LiDAR laser emitters, are accelerating the path to mass
adoption and deployment in consumer vehicles ...
Check out our video of the week, hand-picked by our editorial team:
Mantis Vision's 3D
Call it 3D for the masses or 3D for the mobile generation. They call it MV4D, and it just
might change the way the world creates, uses, and experiences ...

Buzz?: Jeff Fagerman My 18 month old granddaughter is in the stage of
imitating animal sounds as she begins her journey to learning a spoken language. Everything she
hears she tries to echo - over and over and over again. Her favorite is uh oh! for any phone call
or text message sound (I'm not sure where she gets that from). Next up is moo and then a pursed
