Road trip this #MemorialDay? @NXP expects 'high automation' autonomous cars on roads by 2020

Self-driving automotive technology took a big step forward this week, as NXP Semiconductors rolled out a pizza-box-sized module that could bring production-level, “high automation” to the roads by 2020. Known as BlueBox, the new module contains the electronics for radar-, lidar-, and vision-based processing, as well as control of the autonomous steering, brakes, engine, and gearbox. The unit promises to take vehicles to Level 4 autonomy, in which the car operates itself but requires a driver to be present in the front seat. NXP said that four of the world’s top five automakers are already developing vehicles on BlueBox.
