Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) system is another milestone in the technological advancements related for the application of surface mapping and detection. The system uses pulsed laser technology to measure variable distances from a source. The system can also be used for object detection and inspection applications. LiDAR systems are preferred over conventional surveying methods due to their ability to provide highly accurate data and 3D images in a shorter time. The rising demand for 3D imaging technology across various application areas such as entertainment, healthcare, defense and other sectors largely fuels the demand of these systems. Additional utility advantages of LiDAR in archaeological survey applications is gaining a massive adoption in the Asia-Pacific region. The low awareness about the benefits of LiDAR systems and the use of expensive components in LiDAR systems viz., laser scanner, navigation system, high-resolution 3D cameras, etc. are factors that restrain the adoption of LiDAR technology and hinder the market growth. However, the ongoing research and developments linked to the integration of LIDAR systems in driverless cars for obstacle detection and in avoiding collisions, will largely boost the adoption of these systems.
