May 23 2017, 1 The scanner on the car emits a pulse of laser light 2 An object reflects the pulse back to the scanner’s receiver 3 Measuring the time taken for the pulse to return enables distance to be calculated accurately 4 By emitting pulses at a very high rate, a very accurate picture of the surrounding environment can be modelled 5 Rotating scanners can yield a 360-degree model, while “solid state” lidars that do not rotate can scan up to 120 degrees * Light detection and ranging
1. Hydrogen is pumped from tanks to stack … 2. … where it meets oxygen from the inlets 3. The reaction generates an electrical current 4. Voltage is increased by a boost converter 5. The electric motor drives the wheels. When the car is coasting or braking the motor acts as a generator 6. The extra electricity generated by the motor is stored in a drive battery 7. The power control unit oversees fuel cell power output and battery discharge and recharge depending on driving conditions
