Object Detection Technology For Autonomous Vehicles

Car Accidents
August 20, 2017
By
Lee Law Firm , LLC

When it comes to car accidents, New Jersey residents know that these things are a part of life yet they are always events one hopes to avoid and would love to see or hear about fewer of. A person can make the commitment themselves to drive safely but that does not always provide the protection one needs. Too many other people out there continue to make dangerous choices like getting behind the wheel of a car after consuming alcohol, when too tired or after taking prescription or illegal drugs. Things like texting and driving also put innocent drivers and passengers at risk on a daily basis.

These are some of the reasons that autonomous vehicles are being looked at as a potential to help reduce car accidents. No longer would the human driver have the ability to make these choices as it would be the computer in charge, not the human. One type of technology that Delphi Automotive, a vehicle parts maker, is looking to use in products for self-driving cars is directly pertinent to this improved safety.

Called LiDAR, the technology allows the autonomous vehicle to sense any and all objects in a certain range. This is done by creating a three-dimensional map of the area. An Israeli-based company called Innoviz has a form of LiDAR that will be used by Delphi with the specific goal of use in autonomous vehicles. The hope is to be market ready by 2019.

When an accident happens, regardless of the type of vehicle, people in New Jersey might be able to learn how to seek compensation by talking to an attorney.
