Audi Conducts 550-mile Autonomous Driver Test Run

Posted on January 5, 2015

This A7 comes with Audi’s standard long-range forward radar, currently used for adaptive cruise control, but also features two rear-facing and two side-facing radar sensors. A laser scanner, or LIDAR, behind the grille serves as a redundant sensor to help the radar with solid-object detection.
