Sensors are the eyes of the autonomous car – which is why they need perfect vision at all times. Ever focused on driver safety, Valeo is launching the first fully automatic cleaning system for LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensors. Equipped with a small retractable arm and multiple nozzles, Valeo Everview uses just 25 ml of cleaning fluid to thoroughly wash sensors – a quarter of the quantity used by non-automatic systems. It’s set to be fitted to driverless cars by 2020.
