Laser Focus World's take:

As we have continued to highlight in our annual Laser Market Review & Forecast article and forecast, lasers continue to play a role in both industrial and mainstream consumer applications. The Tokyo Olympics will highlight 3D laser scanning to better judge gymnastic finesse. Apparently, this venue will also offer autonomous-vehicle taxi cabs which, as we all know, incorporate a variety of laser and photonic technologies including light detection and ranging (lidar) equipment. Let the games begin!
