Owens said the cameras also got a little blinded in bright sunlight and in rainy weather, but the radar systems always provided backup. The radar, he said, worked well even on metal bridges, which can cause signals to bounce around.
Delphi will use the lessons it learned to improve the systems that will eventually be used in autonomous and even future driverless cars. Earlier this week, Audi AG announced that Delphi will produce a new central computer system that will process the data from various cameras and sensors and tell a car how to respond.
The system will appear in Audis in about two years. Delphi is also supplying Volvo with the radar- and camera-based system that enables automatic braking, lane-departure warning and other safety features on the upcoming XC90.
"This technology has come so far. It's going to make such a difference in the accident statistics," Owens said.
