Group Renault has tested its autonomous control system for challenging driving scenarios against professional test drivers. The Renault Open Innovation Lab in Silicon Valley pitted the obstacle avoidance tech against pro drivers and the technology was equal to the professionals in response accuracy.
The Renault Open Innovation Lab is part of the Labs network within the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance and is focused on improving safety and advancing autonomous driving technology. The new technological advancement adds to existing achievements in driver-assistance systems and vehicle safety and is an important next step in using autonomous driving to improve vehicle safety.
Groupe Renault said that this development will support its goal of becoming one of the first brands to offer widely available “Mind off” technology on mainstream vehicles and deploy fleets of robo-vehicles.
