I flop back on this issue

BI: Today's self-driving cars rely on spinning sensors called lidar that can cost more than $10,000 each. But it took Jonathan Petit just $43 and a laser pointer to confuse and defeat them."Anybody can go online and get access to this, buy it really quickly, and just assemble it, and there you go, you have a device that can spoof lidar," Petit, a cybersecurity expert, told Business Insider.

The issue of going full vision or using ladar has bedeviled me.  Vision, the coordinated feature matching cameras.  But there is no time of arrival which ladar gives. Now we have this hack, so I am stumped a bit, but would rather the flying car kids figure it out.
