LAS VEGAS -- Chinese startup AutoX says mass production of self-driving cars will be a reality "soon" thanks to a tie-up on affordable sensors with compatriot DJI, the world's leading consumer drone maker.

DJI, which controls more than 60% of the global market for consumer drones, rolled out two light detection and ranging, or LIDAR, sensors at the CES electronics show in Las Vegas. The new sensors are priced at one-tenth of what LIDAR sensors with similar capabilities already on the market cost.
