Thanks to the ZED stereoscopic camera, Honda’s autonomous Work Vehicle (AWV) can navigate complex obstacles with ease.
Building a vehicle that can drive itself on ordinary roads is—along with getting computers to hold natural conversations—one of the grand ambitions of modern AI.

Honda’s AWV is an all-electric, four-wheel vehicle developed by the Honda Research Institute. It is deployed predominantly on construction sites to cut down travel time between multiple sites, increasing both the effectiveness and efficiency of the construction workers.
The ZED 2, our 3D stereoscopic RGB-D camera, is the forward-facing camera on board along with other sensors that allow the AWV to easily navigate around the obstacles on the road. The car is designed to effortlessly drive through traffic and light snow, handle four-way stops, traffic lights, and pedestrian crossings.
