Shrimp could help self-driving cars see better in dangerous conditions

It’s this idea that researchers have applied to cameras, altering their photodiodes to use forward bias mode instead of reverse bias. This means that the electrical current from the photodiodes is no longer proportional to the light input of the camera but instead rises logarithmically, much like the shrimp’s sensitivity to brightness. The result is a dynamic range some 10,000 times that of cameras on the market today.
