The human eye as an example for LiDAR

The performance of the human eye is awesome. It has a fantastic resolution, hence small objects can be seen at long distances. It works very well in a huge brightness dynamic range and it is able to estimate distance. This in a system of two eyes and a dedicated computer system – the human vision system (HVS). There are many aspects of the HVS, which outperforms any LiDAR system. However, the performance is based on a very cleverly designed system. Why not use the human eye and the human vision system as an example for future LiDAR systems?
