Ford Fusion Hybrid’s self-driving technology is crafted to combat winter obstacles

Most people in the US have experienced the difficulty of driving in snow in one way or another. It has been a constant challenge because the roads become slippery and road visibility is often an obstacle. In line with this, self-driving vehicles need to be able to navigate through the roads during winter better than present models.

Ford, for example, has disclosed six facts about its self-driving technology that will enable vehicles to brave through the snow conveniently. Ford has built high-resolution 3D maps that will scan the area thoroughly before driving through it.

Ford Fusion Hybrid self-driving cars come with LiDAR technology to first create digital maps of the area where the cars will be driven. Using four LiDAR scanners that yield 2.80 million laser points per second, the vehicle will create digital models of the road and the infrastructures that surround it. The map will then serve as a baseline to identify the position of the vehicle when it is in self-driving mode.
