A light sensor developed by the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) and the University of Virginia is able to amplify weak signals from far away with greater accuracy than current technology, giving autonomous vehicles a fuller picture of what’s happening on the road. The detector is able to amplify weak signals by drastically reducing noise associated with the detection process. Excessive noise causes systems to miss signals, which in the case of autonomous vehicle applications, can put passengers at risk. “Autonomous vehicles send out laser signals that bounce...Read full article
