AU­TON­O­MOUS GRAND C4 PI­CASSO

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - CARS GUIDE -

A PSA Peugeot Citroen ve­hi­cle has trav­elled the mo­tor­way from Paris to Bordeaux unas­sisted by the driver to take part in the In­tel­li­gent Trans­port Sys­tems World Congress, from Oc­to­ber 5-9.

The 580km trip was com­pleted en­tirely in au­ton­o­mous mode, with­out driver in­volve­ment. The ve­hi­cle, a Citroen Grand C4 Pi­casso, au­tonomously ad­justed its speed and changed lanes to over­take, tak­ing into ac­count other ve­hi­cles, speed lim­its and in­fras­truc­ture.

In July 2015, the group be­came the first car­maker to ob­tain the rel­e­vant au­tho­ri­sa­tions to carry out open road tests us­ing four au­ton­o­mous pro­to­types, and some 15 such mod­els in 2016.

PSA Peugeot Citroen works to de­velop so­lu­tions and tech­nolo­gies to make the car of to­mor­row smarter, in or­der to en­hance driver com­fort and adapt to chang­ing cus­tomer be­hav­iours and ex­pec­ta­tions. Au­ton­o­mous driv­ing fea­tures will help cut the num­ber of ac­ci­dents linked to hu­man er­ror and re­duce driver fa­tigue. Th­ese projects will soon be ap­plied to pro­duc­tion mod­els, with the grad­ual de­ploy­ment of driver­less fea­tures.
