All the distance sensing data you will ever need

The HDL-64E Lidar sensor is designed for obstacle detection and navigation of autonomous ground vehicles and marine vessels. Its durability, 360° field of view and very high data rate makes this sensor ideal for the most demanding perception applications as well as 3D mobile data collection and mapping applications. The HDL-64E's innovative laser array enables navigation and mapping systems to observe more of their environment than any other Lidar sensor.

TOP GEAR's Driverless Truck

"It's man versus machine, quite literally!"
"Meet the TerraMax - it has six-wheel drive, tires the size of Ferris wheels... and nobody in the driver's seat!"

Google Self-Driving Car In Action

At the TED 2011 conference in Long Beach, Google gave rare demos of its auto-driving car. This is from outside the car. The car is making extreme turns unlike it would on regular roads because it is on a closed-course and it demonstrating its capabilities.
