These bad boys won’t just be taking you to your destination. They’ll be able to tell what kind of terrain you’re on and change the vehicle’s settings accordingly. All automatic-like. Using cameras, sonar, ultra sonic radar, light detection and the vehicle’s “brain” can sense your surroundings “up to five-meters ahead.” That’s a little over 16-feet in ‘Merican. These sensors are so advanced they’ll also be able to tell the difference between rain and snow falling.
And get this – speed, steering, and suspension are all automatically altered using artificial intelligence technology. Matrix, anyone?
While there’s no timeline for the rollout, there’s something else pretty interesting that these eggheads are up to: creating an entire fleet of self-driving off road vehicles to talk to each other.
