5th Gen Waymo Driver with LiDAR, Radar, Cameras for 360-degree Coverage

Robotic Gizmos

Plenty of companies are working on perfecting self-driving cards. The 5th Gen Waymo Driver better understands its environment and uses a comprehensive view of its surroundings to adapt. It has a LiDAR for a 360-degree field of view with 300 meter range.

The LiDAR system:
provides a bird’s-eye view of the cars, cyclists, and pedestrians surrounding the vehicle. It not only helps the Waymo Driver navigate the complexities of city driving by distinguishing the opening of a car door a city block away, it also gives our trucks the ability to spot road debris hundreds of meters ahead on the highway, so there’s enough time for a Waymo driven truck to stop or make a lane change.
Perimeter lidars are used around the vehicle to detect obstacles nearby. The 5th gen Waymo Driver also has long range cameras and 360-degree vision system. Its radar can see objects at great distances to enable longer reaction time. More info is available here.
