Paving the way with ultrasonic sensing

Imagine a commute to work where, with the press of a button, your electric car automatically drives up to you, opens its door to let you in, navigates on its own through traffic to find the quickest route, pulls up to a garage with automatic gates, parks itself in an available spot, drops you off and charges itself on its own while parked. With the advancement of electric self-driving cars, this future is already starting to become a reality.

Sensors are at the heart of automation – embedded not only within vehicles to make smart driving decisions, but also in the surrounding environment to create a network of intelligence. With an interconnected system of sensors and data mapping the world as we see it, the road to innovation is truly limitless.
