Anyone who has seen one of Google’s self-driving cars or drove a Tesla would be familiar with what a self-driving car looks like. One of such cars was recently spotted on the streets of Lagos and naturally, many were in awe of the technology behind it. A self-driving car also called an autonomous car, is a vehicle that is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input. Autonomous vehicles detect surroundings using radar, lidar, GPS, odometer, and computer vision. Advanced control systems interpret-sensory information to identify appropriate navigation paths, as well as obstacles and relevant signage. Autonomous cars have control systems that are capable of analyzing sensory data to distinguish between different cars on the road, which is very useful in planning a path to the desired destination.
