Why Sensor Fusion is the Key to Self-Driving Cars

Self-driving cars need sensors such as cameras and radar in order to ‘see’ the world around them. But sensor data alone isn’t enough. Autonomous vehicles also need the computing power and advanced machine intelligence to analyse multiple, sometimes conflicting data streams to create a single, accurate view of their environment. Known as ‘sensor fusion’, it […]

Lidar for Self-Driving Cars is Dead. Is Elon Musk Right?

If people outside of the car industry have heard of lidar, there’s a good chance it’s thanks to Tesla CEO Elon Musk. While most teams working on self-driving cars see the light-based technology as an essential tool, Musk insists it’s a false hope – an expensive misstep that distracts from perfect, camera-based vision. Musk and […]
