AUTONOMOUS GRAND C4 PICASSO
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.
