In practical terms, how close is the accuracy of camera-based visual odometry/SLAM methods to lidar-based methods for autonomous car navigation?

Benedict Evans, a general partner at Andreessen Horowitz, claims that “almost all autonomy” projects are using lidar for SLAM, and that not all of them use HD maps. An MIT group is testing self-...
