Simplifying object detection in autonomous cars

Simplifying object detection in autonomous cars Today’s Video of the Day from the National Science Foundation explains how researchers are addressing the challenges of enabling self-driving cars to identify nearby objects. 

Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) is one very accurate method for object detection, but the technology is also expensive and energy inefficient. 

Researchers at Cornell University are working to develop a simple, low-cost alternative to LIDAR that allows autonomous cars to detect 3D objects with high accuracy.
