Self driving cars are capable of driving on the road under normal conditions, but what happens to the vehicle during adverse weather like snow, Ford has started testing their autonomous vehicles in the snow.
Ford is testing out their self driving vehicles in Michigan’s Mcity, in the video below we can see a self driving car in the snow.
Because of the snow they are unable to use their lidar data to pick up landmarks so they are using high resolution maps to navigate the roads.
The technology will require some work before all self driving cars will be able to negotiate different weather conditions, this is something that humans can as they have already learnt how to drive under different conditions like snow.
