Ford Motor Company has partnered with the Michigan Science Center (MiSci) to educate the community on the future of transportation, creating MiSci’s first AV exhibit. Built by Ford engineers and developers working closely with MiSci, the installation resembles a vehicle of the future that guests can engage with and explore inside to learn about AVs through interactive displays and a simulation.
The exhibit shows how AVs operate and make decisions without a human driver, using data that is collected through 3D maps, cameras, sensors and lidar. It also includes an interactive lidar simulation to show how an autonomous vehicle sees the environment around it, such as pedestrians and other cars, as it drives. Users will even be able to take a photo of their experience to keep and share digitally.
