Valeo’s autonomous vehicle has completed 24 hours on the 35km-long Paris beltway, which is characterized by a number of specific features that make driving particularly challenging, including scooters and motorcycles driving between lanes, traffic jams, roadworks, faded road markings, and priority on the right and short exit and on the entrance ramps. The prototype was able to process and anticipate these situations over the full 24-hour period, during both day and night.
The vehicle has also driven 21,000km in the USA and 4,000km around France. Valeo Cruise4U now has 125,000km on the clock, 97% of which were driven in autonomousmode.
