The Uncrashable Car
‘In a 2020 study conducted by AAA, automotive researchers found that over the course of 4,000 miles of real-world driving, vehicles equipped with active driving assistance systems (ADAS) experienced some type of issue every 8 miles, on average. So while ADAS was a step in the right direction, today’s systems are imperfect and unreliable.
By including lidar into a vehicle’s safety system, it surpasses traditional ADAS capabilities. Luminar’s lidar provides the vehicle with higher-confidence detection, faster and farther than camera and radar, enabling proactive collision avoidance at much higher speeds. It has the potential to make consumer vehicles uncrashable without having to remove the human driver from the equation.
