Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, the electronics arm of the Mitsubishi group will adopt technology used in Missile guidance sytems for use in automated cars.
According to a Bloomberg report, Mitsubishi Electronics, which supplies the air-to-air missiles to the Japanese armed forces, is looking to use the technology it used for military purposes to help automated cars detect and avoid obstacles.
Mitsubishi will use components such as millimeter-wave radars, sonars, sensors and cameras which are used in missile guidance systems to help guide automated cars that will be on the roads by 2020.
Katsumi Adachi, Senior Chief Engineer at Mitsubishi's Automotive Equipment Division told Bloomberg, "All we have to do is to put together the components that we already have. None of our competitors have such a wide array of capabilities."
