Groupe Renault announces that it has developed an autonomous control system that can handle difficult driving situations and, for the first time, can avoid roadblocks as well as test pilots. Pilots, carefully selected, have served as inspiration and reference for this achievement of the Renault Open Innovation – Silicon Valley Laboratory.
“Groupe Renault strives to be the leader in innovation through products, technology and design,” said Simon Hougard, Director of the Open Open Innovation Lab – Silicon Valley. “Our innovation efforts aim at developing advanced autonomous driving technologies , where consumers can trust, to create a safer and more comfortable journey. ”
The Renault Open Innovation Lab is part of the Alliance’s network and focuses on improving safety and developing autonomous driving technology. The technological progress announced has the following features: 1. The system is tested by professional pilots and inspired by them 2. Fill in the existing achievements of the Renault brand in terms of driving assistance (ADAS) and vehicle safety. At the same time, this is an important step in using the stand-alone vehicle to improve vehicle safety 3. Will support Groupe Renault’s objective of becoming one of the first brands to offer Mind off technology on a large scale, on production vehicles, and offering robot vehicle fleets The basis for this project is the study by Stanford University’s Dynamic Design Laboratory (led by Professor Chris Gerdes, former Innovation Director of the US Department of Transportation), which led to collaboration with the Renault Open Innovation Lab.
With this new innovation, Groupe Renault uses the strengths of the Alliance and supports the launch of over 15 Renault models by 2022 with different levels of autonomy.
