MicroVision LiDAR Is Worth $2 Billion According To Valuation Of Velodyne And Luminar LiDAR By Ford, Baidu, Hyundai, Volvo (NASDAQ:MVIS)

For outsiders it is usually very difficult or even impossible to determine the value of a company. Especially when it is not based on sales or profits, as in the case of MicroVision (NASDAQ:MVIS), but on intellectual property (patents) and existing technology that will be used in future products. In the case of MicroVision, however, it is essential for shareholders to know the valuation, as the company or parts of it are currently up for sale. In other words, it is important to know the amount a buyer is likely to pay before the sale. The only thing that helps here is to compare the company’s products with those of its competitors. Once this has been done, the company’s valuation can then be derived from the valuations of comparable competing companies. This is what this article tries to do for MicroVision, initially only for the Automotive LiDAR division, i.e.

An international team of researchers has found that carbon sequestering losses in the Amazon basin have been undermeasured due to omission of data representing losses at the edges of forests. In their paper published in the journal Science Advances, the group describes using lidar to estimate the carbon sequestering abilities of trees along the edges of Amazon forests.


Prior research has shown that when part of a forest in the Amazon basin is cut down, the trees that remain at the edges of the forest are not as robust as those that are situated farther in. This is because they are more exposed to pollution, pesticides, herbicides, etc. In this new effort, the researchers noticed that the reduced sequestering abilities of such trees are not included in studies of carbon sequestering losses in
