According to ANSYS’ Global Autonomous Vehicles Research Report, 71% of consumers believe that autonomous cars are already better drivers than humans – or will surpass human abilities by the year 2029.
These basic steps of classification are replicated in iDAR, which mimics how the human visual cortex conceptually focuses on and evaluates the environment, driving conditions, and road hazards by pushing intelligence and processing to the edge of the network.
While conventional LiDAR sensors on autonomous vehicles average around a 10Hz frame rate and revisit rate, iDAR sensors can achieve a frame rate in excess of 100Hz (>3x human vision), and an object revisit rate of >500Hz.
Investment in new technologies to enable autonomous vehicles has taken off in the last decade...
