Can Automated Vehicles "See" in Minnesota? Ambient Particle Effects on LiDAR Systems
Will Northrop, Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering
Project Summary:This project will use a combination of laboratory experimentation and road demonstrations to better understand the reduction of LiDAR signal and object detection capability under adverse weather conditions found in Minnesota. It will also lead to concepts to improve LiDAR systems to adapt to such conditions through better signal processing image recognition software.
