GACHA – the autonomous vehicle that can handle the snow

Autonomous vehicles are generally fair weather vehicles. They’re not really great with extreme weather and for the most part are only on the road during nice days. They’re like vintage cars that way only instead of attempting to preserve paint jobs, the reason why autonomous cars are benched during snow is to save lives. GACHA is the first all weather autonomous shuttle that dares to brave the cold.

This shuttle is equipped with LiDAR perception technology so that it can see better in the rain and snow than current vehicles. The system uses lasers and advanced plotting technology to make an accurate map of what’s around the vehicle so that even when it there’s snow and ice, the vehicle is able to travel safely.

These are being rolled out (hehe) in April on public roads for it’s first real world test. Later they will deploy in different cities in Finland.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
