How a driver-less car sees the road

This is a dated TedTalk, from 2015, but seems very relevant. The lack of views is fairly staggering to me. Again, this is dated so the way cars are "seeing" the road is changing/has changed for many reasons.

Wow, three years ago and the amount of data used to report this is staggering. 3M miles/day in simulaton back then, I wonder what they’ve learned through today? Thinking about the research $$ boggles my mind, who’s funding this and where/what are the projections for payback? One sad thing here is that he’s pledged to deny his kids from experiencing the thrill of WOT under one‘s own command!

The rate of advancement is really exponential and I think soon there will be a technology explosion that will leave people stunned. There are many technology fields that are advancing
