Theoretically you can estimate your pose using lidar data. That is a set of techniques called visual odometry. But it's fairly complicated and laborious task. There are a few companies (e.g. deepmap.ai) whose business is in essence localization based on lidar (and other sensors reading).

Getting your position based on GPS+IMU would be way easier to start with.
