Autonomous Vehicles Case Study

843 Words4 Pages
• Most road accidents are caused by distracted drivers and human errors. With the implementation of autonomous vehicles, these accidents can be reduced greatly and make road travel a lot safer. • Q1. What is the reaction time (in seconds) and distance traveled (in meters) to avoid a given obstacle (width and depth measured in centimeters) in the path (location relative to vehicle, in meters) of an autonomous car using the HCSR04 ultrasonic sensor to prevent a collision? • Q1.1: When the autonomous vehicle is equipped with the HCSR04 ultrasonic sensor, how does the size of the obstacle in the path of the autonomous vehicle determine the cars ability to stop? • Q1.2. How does the speed of the vehicle affect the stopping time (in seconds) and…show more content…
