Autonomous Car
2014-04-10 00:00:00

An autonomous car is a vehicle that is able to move without a driver. Theses vehicles are classified as a self-driving car or a robotic car capable of transporting passengers without the aid of a human driver. Instead of human input, these vehicles use sensors like radar, lidar, GPS and computers to navigate. These systems sense the surroundings, determine obstacles within their path, use maps to determine a route to take. They also keep track of the position the vehicle is and can...

Vehicular Automation

tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
