New Renault self-driving auto can avoid obstacles like a 'pro'

New Renault self-driving auto can avoid obstacles like a 'pro'”

French vehicle maker Renault has developed an "industry first" autonomous control system that can match professional test drivers on road obstacle avoidance scenarios, bringing the auto makers self-driving vision closer to reality.

The technology, demonstrated in a Renault Zoe named Callie, was tested against professional drivers' reactions and avoided unexpected road obstacles and cones as effectively as those drivers.

Renault aims to be one of the first brands to offer widely available autonomous vehicles that do not require any human intervention, and sees its latest invention as a very important step along the way.

Developed in California's Silicon Valley in collaboration with Stanford University's Dynamic Design Lab, the tech will complement Renault's existing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems such as radar cruise control and autonomous emergency braking. The technology scans the road in front for any obstacles to successfully avoid a collision. "Our innovation efforts aim at developing advanced autonomous driving technologies that consumers can trust will create a safer, more comfortable journey".

Renault expects that the new innovation can help it in leveraging its Alliance's strength and can support the launch of more than 15 new models with different levels of autonomous driving capabilities by 2022.

Recently, Renault was part of the Rouen Normandy Autonomous Lab, a €11m project on experimental on-demand mobility service using autonomous electric vehicles on public roads.
