Autonomous driving: sensor check for autonomous vehicles

Self-driving cars do not get tired or unable to concentrate. Therefore, they could ensure fewer accidents, so the hope. But how can you tell whether the vehicle’s sensors have become decrepit and need to be replaced?

A team led by Miriam Elser is investigating this in a project that Empa reports on in its “Empa Quarterly” magazine. Because the sensor quality plays an important role in the approval process for autonomous vehicles.
