Remote sensing technology in autonomous cars

In Colorado and across the nation, people's opinions of self-driving cars run the gamut from great excitement to virtual fear of handing over responsibility for driving to a computer. Regardless of whether or not a person feels positively about autonomous vehicles, most people are interested in how safe these vehicles really might be. Understanding some of the technologies to be put to use in them can be important in assessing this.

A company that manufactures automotive parts, including those for inclusion in autonomous vehicles, has recently announced a new strategic partnership that aims to tackle the issue of safety in self-driving cars head on. Delphi Automotive will use LiDAR technology created by Innoviz, a company based in Israel in select products. This LiDAR technology provides a remote sensing ability that will allow a self-driving car to detect items that may be in its path of travel. By detecting potential problems, the vehicle can then adjust its course so as to avoid any collision.

Objects that can be identified with this special three-dimensional mapping technology range from stationary things like road signs or parked cars to moving objects like other vehicles in transit or even pedestrians. Products made by Delphi with the Innoviz LiDAR technology could be available on the market as soon as 2019.

Accident prevention is always a goal but when crashes do happen, it may be helpful for Colorado residents to speak with an attorney to learn how they may pursue compensation.
