LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) uses ultraviolet light to measure distance and build a map of the environment. In autonomous vehicles, LIDAR is used for detecting and avoiding objects.
Cameras on autonomous vehicles are used to 'see’ traffic lights, vehicles and other objects.
Global Positioning System (GPS)
GPS on autonomous vehicles works in a similar way to GPS systems in regular vehicles and provides the precise location of the car geographically.
Odometry uses motion sensors to estimate position relative to its starting location.
Autonomous emergency braking (AEB)
AEB utilises sensing and detection technologies, and can automatically apply the vehicle’s brakes if it senses a collision is imminent.
