Sam Abuelsamid and the Teammate System

Episode 1803 (24:20)

Sam Abuelsamid

Sam joins Leo to talk about the Lexus 500H, a hybrid that will have the Toytota Team system, the brand's first hands-free driving system. It will also use LIDAR, which is different from the RADAR found in most cars with hands-free driving options. It's chiefly interactive, sending out a laser to read the 3D space around the car, but it falls short in measuring distance and speed. But its higher resolution can see through the 3d space to pick up details RADAR may not see.

Toyota Teammate also relies on more powerful AMD Ryzen processors found in the Sony Playstation 5 and desktop-grade Nvidia GPUs.
