Radar

Time-tested and rugged, radar sensors emit an electromagnetic pulse which reflects off objects and return to the receiver, giving information about the object's location and speed, much like a bat’s use of sound waves to navigate in the dark.

Lidar

Lidars use an infrared laser beam – reflected on a rotating mirror – instead of an electromagnetic pulse, to survey the surroundings. A fast-developing technology, lidars can detect any object, regardless of its characteristics.

Camera

Sensitive to color and contrast, cameras can read lane markings and traffic signs. A passive sensor, cameras complements active sensors like radars and lidars, adding redundancy to the T-pods situation awareness system.

Computer

The T-pod uses the NVIDIA DRIVE platform for its autonomous smarts.

Intelligent

Connected to an intelligent operating system, providing it with customer data, traffic data, etc., the T-pod identifies the most efficient route from A to B, adjusting its course real-time to avoid congestion, optimizing battery use and delivery time.
