Ford starts development of Night Vision for Autonomous Vehicles

With the rising interest in autonomous vehicles, it’s no wonder Ford is also working on their own autonomous car. In the USA, Ford’s technicians have outfitted a Ford Fusion (a Ford Mondeo in the UK) with LiDAR equipment, which allows the vehicle navigate without any outside light sources. The vehicle was able to successfully navigate its way around Ford Arizona’s proving ground. Jim McBride, the technical leader for autonomous vehicles said: “Thanks to LiDAR, the test cars aren’t reliant on the sun shining, nor cameras detecting painted white lines on the asphalt.”
