CES 2015: Delphi’s New Autonomous Driving System Is High-Tech And Well-Hidden [Video]
Dude, where's my lidar?
The first thing that struck us about Delphi’s autonomous-driving model of the Audi S Q5 was that it looked like, well, a car. And a sleek one at that.
Each of the vehicle’s sensors was inconspicuous yet impressive in capability—no garish rotating sensor blocks and eye-like beacons, unlike the company’s 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge vehicle parked outside their tent at the Consumer Electronics Show.
Delphi took us for a ride around the Las Vegas strip in their highly-equipped prototype. Get a glimpse of how it works and what it can do in this video, by our partner Portico.
