Ford’s Self-Driving Car Produces 3D Road Map
A self-driving car that takes 2.5 million measurements every second has been unveiled by Ford. The autonomous vehicle, which took a decade to design and build, is equipped with four infrared light sensors mounted to a roof rack. The sensors constantly scan the road, searching for objects including other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists and small animals. These measurements are turned into a real-time 3D map that is fed into the car’s on-board computers.
