The word is getting out to engineers. This is good. It's not out to the general public yet, but this is more writing on the wall, more good publicity.

At the MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress, Honkanen presented MicroVision’s automotive applications of their technology using HUD overlays to project critical information on the car windshield as part of the driving scene ahead so that the driver can observe the information without taking their eyes off the road
Honkanen also presented how MicroVision’s Laser Beam Scanning technology equipped with near infrared (IR) lasers and IR photodetector can be utilized to develop MEMS based scanning LIDAR systems.
The advantage of MEMS based scanning LIDAR is high horizontal and vertical resolution and the ability to dynamically change the detection resolution and frame rate. The same scanning LIDAR can do both slower high resolution and faster lower resolution captures depending on the application or driving situation.
