Sensors on AV

The following is a list of popular sensors on any autonomous vehicles (AV): 2D camera, range camera, LIDAR, Radar, Sonar, GPS, IMU/compass, odometry. Since autonomous driving requires the vehicle to sense the environment as good and even better than human drivers, multiple sensors are usually used for compensate their capabilities. To ...
