Hamburg/Frankfurt, Germany, 11 Oct 2021 – Honda is showcasing the brand’s self-driving engineering at ITS Globe Congress 2021, as portion of the L3Pilot automated driving undertaking. The EU-driven initiative, a joint effort and hard work of 34 companions from 12 nations, is evaluating the viability of SAE Stage 3 and 4 self-driving features on normal streets, with Honda furnishing four Honda Advert exploration vehicles to assistance the analysis application. The cars are based on the platform of Honda’s Legend govt saloon.  


Drawing on its entire world-major abilities in autonomous systems, the Honda R&D Europe group focused on two study scenarios ‘Traffic Jam Chauffeur’ and ‘Motorway Chauffeur’, covering about 25,900km of testing on German roads.


Honda’s state-of-the-art Ad technology, which monitors visitors disorders on the freeway and requires entire manage of the car or truck from the driver if it establishes that is secure to do so, has helped test autos pilot additional than 25,900km throughout Germany. Operational details was then shared with the L3Pilot job for additional analysis and analysis of the affect and rewards of automated driving in Europe.


“We perspective automatic driving engineering as a vital part of our advanced safety technologies,” said Dr. Robert Kastner, Massive Venture Leader of the L3Pilot Venture at Honda R&D Europe. “Adhering to on from our many years of analysis in this industry, we are delighted to be an active component of this EU innovation initiative, and to assist state-of-the-art analysis action for automatic driving that is aiming to even further enhance security and further cut down accidents on European roads.”


Two Honda Advert investigation vehicles will be at the ITS World Congress in Hamburg, becoming a member of other L3Pilot consortium test autos working on community streets in and all over the present, to exhibit the prospective of automated driving technologies.


Honda has lengthy been at the forefront globally in investigating and producing protection systems. Earlier this calendar year, the enterprise dedicated to attempt for zero site visitors collision fatalities involving Honda motorcycles and automobiles globally by 2050.


Introduced in 2017, the L3Pilot undertaking was initiated to generate a standardised Europe-large piloting natural environment for automatic driving. Coordinating the things to do of automakers and know-how suppliers throughout the continent, the job raises recognition for the commercialisation of self-driving motor vehicles as a result of big-scale piloting of SAE Degree 3 and Amount 4 capabilities in passenger cars and trucks, from motorway and city driving to website traffic jams and parking situations. In full, far more than 400,000km have been pushed on motorways such as 200,000km in automated mode.


The ITS Earth Congress 2021 commences on 11 Oct, with L3Pilot Driving Demonstrations and from 13 October to 14 Oct. The L3Pilot undertaking has been given funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 investigate and innovation programme under grant settlement amount 723051.
