Damn, Lidar guns do make errors
Well, I'd argue it's more lidar gun operators that make errors.Reflections wrote:Damn, Lidar guns do make errors
I wish they'd go into a little more detail about what caused the error. They say in the article the lidar gun needs to track the vehicle for 3 seconds straight, which I've never heard of. The reading the gun obtains is pretty much instantaneous. If a human operator is supposed to hold the device perfectly still for 3 seconds, it's no wonder the reading is so far off.
Maybe the article is just incorrect about specifics, as I notice it keeps mixing up radar and lidar.
