Humans use senses to navigate the world – through sight, smell, sound, taste, and touch, we explore our surroundings, and these senses work together to help us create a complete picture of our environment.
How does an autonomous vehicle create a picture of the world? Similar to a human, an AV uses its sensors to perceive its surroundings, and based on that data, it makes decisions. While each sensor serves an important function, the collective input – or sensor fusion – is what makes the system work safely.
In this PAVEcast, two AV CEOs will join us to explore the world of robot navigation. Aaron Nathan, CEO, CTO and Founder of Point One Navigation, and Dr. Anuja Sonalker, CEO and Founder of STEER, will explain how the pieces of the AV stack work together, create redundancies, and provide AVs with a full-picture view of the world.
