Advanced Mapping


Self­-driving cars will feature detailed mapping similar to a GPS, that will allow it to know all the information available on the streets, roads and construction to properly navigate a path to a destination that you have programmed. The mapping will include the ability to read traffic lights and posted road signs, sense guardrails and overpasses, and gather information on any accidents in the vicinity, all in 3­-D. The mapping sensor is mounted on top of the car’s roof, which limits obstructions and allows the sensor to have a wider range of perception than a human being.
