Check out an important next step in using autonomous driving to improve vehicle safety. This swift test run for Groupe Renault’s autonomous control system shows Renault’s autonomous control adeptly handling challenging driving scenarios. Renault reports that, as an industry first, its system can perform road obstacle avoidance as well as professional test drivers. Renault continues that the drivers served as the inspiration and the benchmark for this achievement at Renault Open Innovation Lab – Silicon Valley.

“At Groupe Renault, we are focused on being an innovation leader in products, technology, and design,” said Simon Hougard, Director of Renault Open Innovation Lab – Silicon Valley. “Our innovation efforts aim to develop advanced autonomous driving technologies that consumers can trust will create a safer, more comfortable journey.”

Here’s more from Renault:

The technological advancement announced today:

  • Has been inspired by and tested against professional test drivers
  • Complements Renault’s existing achievements in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and vehicle safety. It is an important next step in using autonomous driving to improve vehicle safety
  • Will support Groupe Renault’s goal of becoming one of the first brands to offer widely available “Mind Off” technology on mainstream vehicles and deploy fleets of robo-vehicles

The basis for this work comes from research published by Stanford University’s Dynamic Design Lab (led by Professor Chris Gerdes, former Chief Innovation Officer for the U.S. Department of Transportation), with which Renault Open Innovation Lab has been collaborating.

With this new innovation, Groupe Renault is leveraging the strength of The Alliance and supports the launch of more than 15 Renault models with different levels of autonomous driving capabilities by 2022.

No one likes traffic — lanes clogged during rush hour are irritating with long bouts in start-and-stop traffic. Even for those who wish to drive, that time spent in an autonomous vehicle would offer a lessening of the tense irritability of dangerous and congested traffic. At the end of a long workday, navigating traffic with improved safety (autonomous) features provides more benefits for human well-being. They’re also helpful for long and late-night drives.
