Lidar and Optical V2V: On the Road to Autonomous Vehicles

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email

Lidar and optical vehicle-to-vehicle communication may be able to work together to provide solutions to autonomous vehicle challenges.

DON WILKINS, FORMER U.S. ARMY SIGNAL CORPS

Two different optical technologies — one already deployed, the other still on the drawing board — promise to ease autonomous vehicle integration. Lidar, the optical analog to radar, is deployed in Waymo and Uber vehicles and acts as the eyes, helping autonomous processors “see” the surrounding environment. Optical vehicle-to-vehicle (OV2V) communication is still in the design phase and can transmit a vehicle’s current state to other vehicles. Combining these two approaches would lessen the computational burden on an autonomous vehicle’s processors, could...Read full article
