Android Creator Andy Rubin Exits the Googleplex

andy-rubin Andy Rubin, the creator of Google’s ubiquitous Android mobile platform, has left Google, the company confirmed on Friday. “I want to wish Andy all the best with what’s next,” said Google CEO Larry Page. “With Android he created something truly remarkable — with a billion plus happy users. Thank you.” Rubin reportedly is departing to start a tech incubator for hardware-focused startups. He stepped down as head of Android in March — turning over the reins to SVP of Chrome and Apps Sundar Pichai — and turned his attention to robots instead.

Global LiDAR Market to See 16.64% CAGR to 2018 Says a Research Report Available at

(PRWEB) October 26, 2014

The total LiDAR market which is currently valued at $ 218.87 million expected to grow at a CAGR of 16.64% from 2013 to 2018 and reach 551.26 million in 2018.

The term ‘LiDAR’ is an acronym for ‘Light Detection and Ranging’, which has been derived from the common term ‘RADAR’. LiDAR technology has been around in the military and research circles since the early 1950s. A typical LiDAR system mainly consists of three major components: a laser sensor, a Global Positioning System (GPS) unit, and an inertial navigation unit. The LiDAR system sends out laser pulses at the object/area to be mapped, and collects data by recording the pulses reflected by/from the object. In certain instances, as many as 100,000 such pulses are sent out every second.

Early LiDAR systems were very bulky and thus, they were very expensive to operate. In the last two decades, technological progress has brought the size of a LiDAR system down to a point where, LiDAR, as a technology, has become a very accurate and affordable solution. The advancement in the GPS and inertial navigation unit technologies has also propelled the LiDAR market further.

However, the airborne LiDAR market has the lowest CAGR among all the product types. This indicates the shift in trend in the light detection and ranging market. Due to innovations in terrestrial and mobile light detection and ranging systems, the cost-benefit ratio for these LiDAR types is expected to surpass that of airborne light detection and ranging system. It can be said that the terrestrial and mobile light detection and ranging systems are disrupting the airborne LiDAR market to some extent.
