Project Teaser: EXPO2023by STARTUP AUTOBAHN powered by Plug and Play
in cooperation with the STARTUP AUTOBAHN partner Webasto
The effects of harsh weather conditions on LiDAR remain a key challenge on the road to fully autonomous driving. In freezing temperatures, LiDAR sensors can be covered with ice, fog, and snow, risking reliable detection of objects and distances. Integrating a fixed film heater into the Roof Sensor Module (RSM) enhances the reliability of LiDAR in harsh weather, making autonomous driving safer.
