3 Serious Water Damage Problems Autonomous Vehicles Face, and How to Solve Them

The race is on. Engineers are working to develop autonomous vehicles that are safe, efficient, and affordable. To do so, engineers are perfecting LiDAR systems; one of the main components in autonomous vehicles that are responsible for “seeing” the road. LiDAR sensors emit pulses of light that bounce off objects, creating a 3D map of […]
