This How Do Self-Driving Cars “See”? video also includes:
What do you get when you mix LiDAR and integrated photonics technology? Why a self-driving car, of course. A fascinating short video describes how light detection and ranging, LiDAR for short, and integrated photonics technologies enable self-driving cars to see.
- Have groups research the engineering involved in lane-centering steering, full-speed adaptive cruise control, and other semi-autonomous features in hybrids and self-driving cars
- Provides links to a myriad of related resources that provide more in-depth discussions of light-based technology; have class members explore those links that interest them and report on what they've learned
- The animations make complex technology easy to understand
