Renault develops advanced autonomous control system benchmarked against human test drivers

LinkedIn +

Groupe Renault has developed an autonomous control system that can handle challenging driving scenarios. The technology is said to be capable of road obstacle avoidance on a par with that which professional test drivers can perform. In the development of the system at the Renault Open Innovation Lab in Silicon Valley, these drivers served as a benchmark.

The basis for this work comes from research published by Stanford University’s Dynamic Design Lab – led by Professor Chris Gerdes, former chief innovation officer for the US Department of Transportation – which has been working in collaboration with Renault Open Innovation Lab.
