The recent AutoSens conference in Detroit left me questioning whether I should turn in my driver’s license. The answer the attending OEMs gave to all the discussions about the advantages of RGB cameras, ultrasound, radar, lidar, and thermal sensors was a unanimous “We probably need all of them in some form of combination” to make autonomy a reality in automotive. Together, these sensors are much better than my eyes and ears. Technology progress is speedy in Automated Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving, but we are not there yet holistically. So I am keeping my license for some more time.
