COMMENT: LiDAR to play central role in self-driving vehicle anatomy

BY KETAKI BHATKHANDE. The autonomous vehicle is made up of many complex parts that must all work in unison

Senses, organs, and systems – these are some of the vital components of the human body, and they are not entirely unlike the structure of an autonomous car. Humans have five senses.
