Autonomous vehicles are now moving beyond early applications in the military and construction industries to revolutionize the way we drive every day. Sensors and actuators play a critical role in self-driving vehicles, controlling both the driving and safety aspects of the car. As such, they must operate flawlessly.

This 60-Minute Webinar from SAE International and Tech Briefs Media looks at the function of various types of sensors as well as which sensors are best suited for each function.

A Q&A follows the technical presentation.
