Street View

Street View/CityBlock is a research project created for the purpose of imaging public streets and areas. The vehicle(s) are equipped with commercial grade digital still and video cameras and an array of eye-safe lasers. These sensors rapidly image the area surrounding the vehicle and store those images on computers inside the vehicle. The imagery the vehicle produces is equivalent to a series of high-resolution pictures. The vehicle is built to comply with road-safe laws and does not pose any special risk to others on the road.


 

Description:

At times this will require specific areas to be driven multiple times due to poor weather and/or lighting conditions. Associates must enjoy driving and be available for a minimum of 1-3 months.
