Infographic: The different sensor technologies explained
Autonomous vehicles will need to outperform human driving capabilities. How? It all starts with the perception of their environment: What is around me? Where is everybody moving? Can I move on safely? Are there limitations such as speed? What is happening further down the road?
All this information, and more, is collected in real time by different sensors. Our infographic shows how the different types of sensors work, why they are vital – and what the future challenges will be for them.
