MICHAEL EISENSTEIN, SCIENCE WRITER

The dream of fully autono­mous, driverless cars remains just that for now — a vision of a future that will require considerable effort from engineers and programmers to realize. But other, subtler forms of automation are already entering the market for both passenger and commercial vehicles, in the form of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADASs). And parallel advancements in sensors based on light detection and ranging (lidar) are helping to pave the way. Lidar is essentially the optical equivalent of radar. Light is projected from a laser source, and the reflected illumination...Read full article
