There are now 45 companies testing self-driving vehicles on Californian soil, mostly in the Bay Area—a place known for having T-shirt weather nine months out of the year.
But how much can we ever expect the general public to buy into self-driving cars if they haven’t trudged through rain, slush and snow?
Fred Tung, a computer-vision researcher in British Columbia, drove around Vancouver on a rainy night to try and find out.
Tung didn’t have an autonomous car at his disposal; rather, he used a dashcam to record his drive. Then he returned to the lab to figure out how well the 720p camera was able to detect objects in low-visibility settings.
