The auto maker is the first OEM to obtain authorization in France to carry out autonomous mode experiments with ‘non-expert’ drivers.
Tests will begin in March 2017 with customers behind the wheel of the company’s autonomous cars. Demonstrators can travel on approximately 2,000km of French express roads. Since July 2015, prototypes driven by experts have already covered 120,000km on European express roads.
This authorization is a significant move forward in the development of PSA Group’s autonomous car technology. From 2020, some of the company’s vehicles will be equipped with autonomous technology, which will enable the driver to give the car full control.
