Driverless Car: What Does It See?
If a car drives itself, what does it see? How does it compare with you?
Ford and MIT are teaming up to help the car do better. A big challenge: How to see around an obstacle, to see what other obstacles lie ahead. My first thought is, the human driver may see more distractions, like the reflections on the hood and the shadows on the ground. On the other hand, the driverless car might miss “potential” hazards farther off. What do you think?
