At the CES Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, a refined drone made its debut based on the new generation flagship Lexus LS sedan

Lexus has introduced a new prototype car with automatic control, built on the basis of the flagship LS sedan. The public premiere of the drone will take place on January 7 at the CES Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The car, called the P4, will demonstrate two technologies called the Guardian and Chauffer. The first one was created to “help a person control the machine and not replace it.” It is assumed that this is a complex of auxiliary systems of semi-automatic control.

Chauffer mode, on the contrary, involves a fully automatic control without driver assistance. The equipment includes a laser rangefinder LIDAR with eight sensor heads, two additional cameras, as well as a set of new sensors.

Finally, P4 received a more powerful computer that is able to respond faster, make better decisions, and also quickly memorize the necessary algorithms for self-learning.
