Sensors for autonomous driving – from research to series production

Since years, a dream of visionary people and science fiction authors is the autonomously driving vehicle. In the past years, this dream comes into reach as available computational resources as well as the available industrialized sensors show the potential to realize this vision.
Bosch started a project of autonomous driving, based on its comprehensive and profound experience in driver assistance systems. The already available sensor portfolio of Bosch, consisting of ultrasonic sensors, radars and cameras, represents a strong basis to let this dream of autonomous driving come true. In this speech, a peek into the current status of driver assistance sensors and systems will be shown.
