The autonomous car that can drive where others cannot

Researchers at MIT CSAIL have developed an autonomous car that drive on unpaved or unmarked roads.

Most self-driving cars rely on 3D maps with precise measurements of lanes and cannot venture onto unmapped roads.

But MIT CSAIL’s MapLite combines GPS, a normal map and laser sensors which allows the car to drive into more remote areas.
