The engineers, researchers and automotive experts over at American automaker Ford have developed an exceptionally innovative and high-tech autonomous research vehicle that is capable of navigating even in conditions that are so dark that a human can't see where they're going.

These vehicles make use of LiDAR technology that effectively and efficiently works together in conjunction with a whole array of cameras and radar equipment that enable it to navigate through tricky conditions. High-resolution 3D maps are used to enable the real-time location of the car.

Ultimately, these autonomous research vehicles could prove to be useful in a wide array of settings ranging from commercial and industrial to military and scientific, thanks to their supremely reliable precision and safety features.
