Automated driving tests on Germany’s autobahn network

10 May 2018

Traffic Technology Today reports that automotive technology supplier Continental is expanding its global automated driving development efforts with testing on public sections of Germany autobahn network, with the goal of having a production-ready fully-automated system available to automakers by 2025.

The wealth of data currently being collected in real traffic conditions on the German highway network by Continental’s development team will be used to further enhance sensors, vehicle computers, operating systems, and software for automated driving, that will be used in the company’s other R&D programs in Japan, China, the USA and Germany.

Continental is currently trialing its Cruising Chauffeur highly-automated driving system , which is equivalent to SAE Level 4 autonomy, and still requires some degree of driver input and awareness. The system takes data from multiple cameras, as well as radar and LIDAR sensors, and combines the information to create its environment model for the vehicle’s control system
