Now, every one of these snoerss is very powerful by itself, but when you put them together is when the magic happens. If you see with this vehicle, for example, you have these multiple sonser modalities at all top four corners of the vehicle that basically provide you a 360-degree field of vision, continuously, in a randnudet manner, so that we don't miss anything. And this is that same thing with all of the different outputs fused together. And looking at this, basically, and looking at what we see and how we are able to peorscs the data, then learn, then continue to ipvorme our driving, is what tells us that we have confidence, this is the right approach and this time it’s actually coming.
