The Technologies Driving the Autonomous Car

In this image, radar and lidar work together to determine safe driving distances between vehicles. The autonomous driving system leverages radar’s ability to “see” long distances and function in bad weather. Lidar, on the other hand, provides a more comprehensive picture of the vehicle’s surroundings. Use of these two sensors provides redundancy and precludes catastrophic failure.

Possibly the greatest challenge for autonomous vehicles is that driverless vehicles must have sensing and control systems that exceed the capabilities of human drivers.
