Most automated vehicles today rely on sensor fusion — i.e., the combination of data from sensors that use radar, lidar and cameras to collect environmental information. As AV giants have demonstrated, sensor fusion boosts self-driving vehicle performance and produces safer outcomes.
But not all sensor fusion is alike. While many AV manufacturers rely on high-level sensor fusion, only deep, centralized sensor fusion provides AVs with the information they need to make optimal driving decisions.
Here, we'll further explain the differences between high-level and centralized sensor fusion — and why centralized fusion will prove indispensable.
