Just like human beings autonomous vehicles need to orientate themselves. This happens via sensors allowing a vehicle to know where it is and thus orientate itself. This information determines the speed and route a vehicle chooses. The sensors therefore need to be highly accurate and frequent: the tiniest inaccuracies can have severe or even fatal consequences, especially at high speeds. Apart from this, all autonomous vehicles need to be able to determine any (possible) obstacles en route. This calls for object detection and classification. In collaboration with @north, robotTUNER is now developing a sensor configurator, which aims to simplify the abovementioned choices for sensors. Sensor configuration depends highly on the tasks an autonomous vehicle has to carry out. There may very well vary greatly due to the complexity of the environment and the speed with which a task has to be executed.
