Unidentified Toyota Spotted in Ontario

Our reader Stephen Clonts sent us this picture of a Toyota Highlander with Californian license plate. The vehicle that is equipped with some unusual LiDAR and camera mounts was spotted in front of a Best Western hotel in Ontario, CA. The LiDAR-arrangement could be pointing it to be a mapping vehicle for self-driving cars.

As always we appreciate any tips which company that could be.
