Driverless Tech Must Work Without Connectivity

If an autonomous future is to become a reality, it has to be achieved with a driverless vehicle able to operate safely without connectivity.

That’s the view of Carl Jackson, head of corporate strategy at Provizio, a specialist in advanced radar technology. He also argues an automaker that does not deploy sophisticated imaging sensors beyond the use of cameras will not achieve robust performance, even in advanced driver-assistance systems ahead of full autonomous-driving capabilities.

His view on connectivity is informed with his company’s experience in providing its 5D radar sensor solution, first presented at CES 2023, to the mining industry. He points out that an automated driving vehicle working deep underground does so with no connection to GPS or the Internet of Things.
