ADAS applications feasibility is connected with the necessity of trustable sensors. The lack
of cheap and reliable sensors underlines the need to use different sensors at the same time.
LIDAR provides reliable but limited information of the surroundings for a vehicle
application. This paper presents a comparison between two different kinds of LIDAR
sensors focusing on their possibilities of being used in ADAS applications. Finally a new
method for detecting moving obstacles, mainly vehicles, is proposed. This method has been
implemented and tested; results of the different test performed are shown.
