Localizing ground-penetrating radar helps autonomous vehicles to stay in lane without the use of road markings

When the ground including road markings is covered in snow, how can autonomous vehicles stay in-lane? The MIT Lincoln Laboratory has developed a LGPR (localizing ground-penetrating radar) tool to complement other technologies used by autonomous vehicles (including GPS, LiDar, cameras and existing maps), which help them to continuously position themselves on roads and in lanes.
