Elon Musk calls self-driving laser sensors 'lame' at Tesla's Autonomy Day

Musk let his strong opinions about LiDAR fly at Tesla's Autonomy Day, an event that gave investors at the company's Palo Alto headquarters and 50,000-plus livestream viewers an inside look at self-driving tech.  Read more...More about Tesla, Autonomous Vehicles, Lidar, Tech, and Elon Musk
