While autonomous vehicles may accurately navigate by following GPS waypoints, they are still "blind" in the sense that they are unable to see potentially hazardous obstacles in their path such as animals, people, and other vehicles.
To solve this safety issue, ASI equips autonomous vehicles with obstacle detection and avoidance
software and sensors that actively search for obstacles within the path of the vehicle and warn the VCU and operator of their presence. Depending on the installation, vehicles may react to obstacles with see-and-stop or see-and-avoid behavior.
The final layer of safety is ASI's command and control software, Mobius™
. Operators use the Mobius path builder to determine a safety perimeter for safe autonomous operations.
