Day 30 Capability: Navigate roads with faded or missing lane markings

on December 19, 2017

In order for self-driving cars to be able to go anywhere, they need to be able to navigate roads that have missing or unclear lane lines. Our self-driving platform includes robust localization capabilities and multiple methods of positioning the car on roads that do not rely on lane lines alone.

This video demonstrates the Torc self-driving car navigating along faded lines, as well as on a road with no lines at all. Our car continues to follow the road at a safe distance from potential vehicles driving in the adjacent lane, and drives in a consistent path in spite of rough road.

We’re showcasing the capabilities of our autonomous car system on real public roads with real scenarios the car has encountered. To get updates on the latest videos, check back on our blog or subscribe to our YouTube channel.
