LiDAR is an acronym of "Light Detection And Ranging" or "laser imaging, detection, and ranging"] LiDAR sometimes is called 3-D laser scanning, it is essentially a special combination of a 3-D scanning and laser scanning.

With LiDAR, a pulsed laser is sent out to scan for the distances of everything in the environment around the LiDAR sensor. This then reads out an accurate 3-D Map of the surrounding area.
