In much the same way that pilots have been looking forward to some kind of autopilot technology being developed, the general public has been looking forward to the same sort of device being developed for cars and trucks. Unfortunately, this kind of technology has remained in the realm of science fiction, the sort of thing you could see on the Jetsons and dream about your descendents owning. In recent years, this has changed however. Over the last decade, there has been an incredible amount of progress made in the development of the kind of technology that would allow car companies to design and produce motor vehicles that could essentially drive themselves. A truly autonomous vehicle, also known as a self driving car, is a motor vehicle that is capable of not only navigating and moving through its environment without crashing, but also doing these things while simultaneously following the traffic laws in the area around them. In order for a car or truck to be able to operate with little or no human input throughout the process, it must be equipped with a variety of advanced sensory technology. This can include devices using radar, Lidar, sonar, GPS, and even odometry (motion sensors that track movement). But even those advanced sensory technologies may not …
