Companies team up to improve autonomous car safety

Many Maryland residents who are eagerly awaiting the introduction of autonomous vehicles on a large scale may well be intrigued about the possibility that these cars could dramatically reduce the number of accidents that happen. Certainly improved safety has been put forth as a primary benefit of these vehicles but just how might this be achieved?

One way that a self-driving car might be able to keep people safer than a human-driven car is through the ability to avoid an accident with another object. This may be done by the inclusion of special technology that allows the vehicle to sense anything in a certain range. While this may sound futuristic, it is real today. One company that makes this technology, referred to as LiDAR, is called Innoviz. Innoviz will be working with a vehicle parts maker, Delphi Automotive, so that its LiDAR technology may be built into Delphi's products.

The LiDAR systems can essentially create multi-dimensional maps of everything in the vehicle's span that shows other vehicles, stationary objects, moving objects and people be they on foot, bicycles, scooters or something else. The vehicles can then know to manuever so as to avoid these things.

Whether Maryland residents will be able to enjoy a world completely devoid of car accidents remains to be seen. For this reason, it may be helpful to always be prepared to consult with a lawyer after any accident to learn how to protect one's rights.
