Hey two companies with new LIDAR tech. Bosch has announced that it's solution is in the $1000 per vehicle range, vice $75000 (yes, seventy five thousand... for early prototype LIDAR systems), thus making the Bosch system vastly more affordable.

Well, let's see what happens in 4 more years.

BTW California has approved the use of low speed autonomous transport systems. https://www.theverge.com/2019/12/18/...california-dmv
Not exactly a car, but your pizza may arrive via a "transporter."
No doubt there will be lots more press releases promoting the virtues of the product being promoted.

Let's see if anybody incorporates any of the latest and greatest good ideas into a practical vehicle that has a chance in heck of being manufactured and sold by any company for profit.
