The fiercely fought battle in California among self-driving tech companies has taken a new twist with the granting of a permit to Korean firm Vueron.

The permit, issued by the California Department of Motor Vehicles, is the first in the state to sanction the testing of autonomous vehicles (AVs) using one Lidar sensor only.

Generally, the self-driving capabilities of AVs are facilitated by an array of different equipment, including Lidar, radar and cameras.

Remarkably, though, Vueron has bucked convention by eschewing most of this tech to pursue automated driving by using what it describes as "one spinning Lidar sensor."
