How a self-driving car sees the world

How a self-driving car sees the world

Cars have come a long way since the first Model Ts left Ford's assembly plant in Detroit, especially in terms of safety. First, there was the seat belt, then came better breaks and airbags. Yet, a staggering 1.25 million people still die on world's roads every year. That's a depressingly high fatality count despite today's cars being packed with hundreds of sensors and smart electronics.
