New way to 'see' objects accelerates the future of self-driving cars

The laser sensors currently used to detect 3D objects in the paths of autonomous cars are bulky, ugly, expensive, energy-inefficient -- and highly accurate. Cornell researchers have discovered a relatively simple, low-cost method that allows autonomous cars to detect 3D objects with high accuracy.
