When you are relaxing at the wheel, enjoying a fully-autonomous Mitsubishi vehicle in the future, you’ll have missile technology to thank.
Mitsubishi has its hand in all sorts of diverse industries. In addition to making extraordinary SUVs like the Mitsubishi Outlander, the automaker also makes rockets and missiles.
Most people are familiar with the notion of a guided missile. Modern-day, high-tech missiles reach their target by means of a guidance system that can include all sorts of technologies. Missiles manufactured by Mitsubishi use millimeter-wave radars, sonar, sensors and cameras to achieve success.
Mitsubishi has recently announced that it will be taking the systems that it uses in its missiles and using them to enhance Mitsubishi autonomous technology. As one can imagine, the technology is quite easily applicable to use in road vehicles.
As Popular Mechanics relates, the fact that Mitsubishi has all of the tech “in-house” means it shouldn’t take too long at all before we see Mitsubishi vehicles arrive at market bearing this super high-tech tech.
