Robots and autonomous vehicles rely on sensors to let them understand and interact with the world around them. While the robotics industry has evolved rapidly over the past decade, the sensors that robots used have largely remained the same. This is about to change, with a number of new sensing modalities making the transition from academia to industry. Sensors like event cameras, millimeter wave radar, omnidirectional cameras, and others promise capabilities that could make depth sensors, LiDAR, and normal cameras obsolete. But will they? In this discussion, we'll cover these and other new sensing modalities. We'll describe the operational advantages versus incumbent sensors, and the environments where these new sensors could be used. We'll also analyze the business impact that these sensors might deliver.
