Self-Driving Cars

Will Self-Driving Cars Be Able to Handle the Challenges of Driving on Indian Roads?

Self-driving cars are no longer just a futuristic concept – they’re already here, and they’re driving on the streets of cities like San Francisco and Phoenix. And it’s only a matter of time before they become ubiquitous around the world, including in busy cities like New Delhi and Mumbai.

But how do self-driving cars work, and how will they handle the challenges of driving on the crowded and chaotic streets of India?

Arvind Srivastav, radar expert at Zoox, a leading self-driving car company, explains that self-driving cars use a combination of sensors, including cameras, lidar, and radar, to gather information about their surroundings. This information is then processed by advanced algorithms and software, which allow the car to navigate roads, avoid obstacles, and make decisions in real-time.

According to Arvind, “Radars play a vital role in the safety of self-driving cars, especially in extreme adverse weather conditions like heavy rain and dense fog, which are common in cities like Delhi during the monsoon season and in winter.”

When it comes to driving in adverse weather conditions, Arvind says that radars are particularly useful because they can “see” through rain, fog, and other forms of precipitation. This allows self-driving cars to continue operating safely, even in conditions that would make it difficult or impossible for human drivers to see the road.

“I’m extremely excited about the potential for self-driving cars in India,” says Arvind. “With their ability to handle busy streets and challenging weather conditions, I believe they have the potential to revolutionize transportation in cities like Delhi and Mumbai.”

So, while there may be challenges and hurdles to overcome before self-driving cars become widespread in India, there’s no doubt that they represent the future of transportation – and experts like Arvind are looking forward to seeing them on the roads in Delhi and Mumbai.
