Initial tests of PSA Group’s autonomous cars for non-expert drivers

LinkedIn +

PSA Group has launched the Autonomous Vehicle for All (AVA) program, which brings together a range of functions that will gradually lead to the partial, and later total, delegation of driving to the car itself, if the driver so wishes.

The program will be rolled out on all the OEM’s vehicles including Peugeot, Citroën and DS models. The demonstration models tested, which are being tested by motorists, are equipped with function level 3 ‘eyes off’ and 4 ‘mind off’. These vehicles are the forerunners of the completely autonomous cars that will become available after 2020.

Currently, driver assistance functions originating from the AVA program are already available on several vehicles; in Europe, the Peugeot 208, 308, 2008 SUV, all-new 3008 SUV and Traveller and the Citroën C4 Picasso, C3 and Spacetourer, and in China, the Peugeot 4008 and the Citroën C6.
