Pioneer and HERE announced a project utilizing Pioneer’s 3D-LiDAR towards building a "Data Ecosystem" for autonomous driving.

The low-cost 3D-LiDAR is currently under development by Pioneer. The companies will begin self-localization proof experiment which is required for detecting high-quality map update information by integrating Pioneer’s 3D-LiDAR with HERE’s high precision map for automated driving.

Pioneer is developing a high-performance, compact, low-cost 3D-LiDAR system for in-car applications by leveraging its optical disc technologies cultivated over the years. It is quite interesting to see that a company is able to use a technology of consumer electronics that failed decades ago for something cutting edge as autonomous driving.
