The 130-year-old paint manufacturer PPG Industries teaches autonomous vehicles how to recognize their peers. As dark paint absorbs light waves, the sensors of driverless vehicles have problems detecting black car bodies. For this reason, PPG has developed a special paint that reflects the sensors’ infrared signals. The model for this technical innovation are the color pigments of the eggplant which uses this natural trick to keep a little cooler than other vegetables in summer.
