Groupe PSA deploys autonomous driving functions with the AVA "Autonomous Vehicle for All" program
Automated driving functions under driver supervision (level 2) are available on DS 7 CROSSBACK, DS 3 CROSSBACK and PEUGEOT 508 & 508 SW.
Groupe PSA was the first manufacturer to receive authorisations to run its demonstrators in autonomous mode on open roads in France and Europe since 2015.
Groupe PSA participates in the European L3Pilot project
- The aim of the L3Pilot project is to test and validate autonomous driving as an efficient and safe means of transport. Tests will all be conducted on open roads in several European countries. They will assess technical aspects, driving behaviour, user acceptance, impact on traffic and safety in various driving conditions (urban environments, roads and motorways).
- The four-year European project launched in 2017 has an overall budget of €68 million, half of which is funded by the European Commission.
Groupe PSA’s participation in this international project confirms its commitment to the development of autonomous driving technologies. With its “Autonomous Vehicle for All” (AVA) programme, the Group is gradually bringing autonomous driving functions to the market.
Groupe’s participation in the project is also strengthening its expertise in the development of autonomous vehicles thanks to a global ecosystem of partners, including European carmakers, research centres, roads authorities…
Groupe PSA will share the project feedback with the other partners to find-tune the necessary systems and establish a code of good practices.
