Moving forward- Testing Self Driving cars

Moving forward i focus on Automotive testing which includes Infotainment, ADAS, Self driving or Autonomous cars.
I will try to describe the various test technologies involved in Automotive.

Sneak Peak -Self Driving cars:

A Self driving car also called as Autonomous or Connected cars is an automobile that is designed to travel between places without
any human interventions. It is an advancement is Telematics technology that it is self governed.
We have many top companies working on it as of now, but the race is who reaches first to implement it fully on road.
It uses a variety of technologies to get it working. Some of the technologies include:

RADAR
LIDAR
Sensors
GPS
Computer vision
Odometry
Artificial Intelligence

In most of the roads it is not legal to test the self driving cars.The Deparment of Motor vehicles has designed a set of regulation to test the self driving car.
