The Aurora Driver’s sensor cleaning system allows for visibility through many common weather conditions, enabling commercial operations year-round.
In this video, the Aurora Driver drives through heavy rain and utilizes FirstLight lidar to gain visibility into its surroundings. As shown in the camera view, our sensor cleaning system blasts high-pressure air and washer fluid to prevent moisture and debris buildup. When the road is slippery and visibility is obscured, the Aurora Driver operates conservatively by creating buffer room for other drivers and maintaining lower speeds.
