Hitachi Automotive Systems is to conduct a verification test drive of an autonomous driving system co-developed with Clarion, a provider of in-vehicle infotainment technologies and intelligent safety systems. This will take place on the Hitachinaka Road in Hitachinaka City, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan, from February 22-26.
Information from the test vehicles’ 360° surroundings detection sensor fusion will be integrated with information on geographic features obtained from high-precision maps. This will allow the test vehicle to recognize and follow road lanes and other vehicles in its surroundings to automatically carry out single-lane driving and lane changes.
For the collection of experimental data, the verification test drive will be carried out under varying weather, time and daylight conditions.
