Title
(EN) Autonomous vehicle conversion
Abstract
(EN)

An assembly includes a sensor module having an external surface configured to receive a seal and defining a perimeter. The assembly includes a plurality of sensors supported by the sensor module. The assembly includes a lock movable between a locked state and an unlocked state and supported by the sensor module within the perimeter. A computer is supported by the sensor module and is programmed to actuate the lock.
