Here’s a preview of my talk at the Automated Vehicles Symposium next week.
Abstract: Sensors are arguably one of the most important components in an automated driving system as they are the input to everything in the control system including artificial intelligence processes. While it is uncontested that cameras, radar, LiDAR, and others all have strengths in detecting objects, there is also great debate what the optimal solution and combination of sensors for an automated vehicle is. While this presentation does not aim to answer the question about the optimal solution, it will give an overview of the current debate, research activities, product solutions, and market trends. The audience will recognize several examples and hopefully also take note of thus far missed recent advances. In that sense, this talk aims to initiate further discussion regarding automated vehicle sensors at the conference and beyond.
