Joint European effort boosts automated driving

L3Pilot, Europe’s first comprehensive pilot test of automated driving on public roads demonstrates automated systems for cars in Hamburg, Germany, in conjunction with ITS World Congress 2021.

  • SAE Level 3 and 4 functions tested on ordinary roads in seven European countries, including cross-border activities
  • Pan-European testing environment and methodology developed
  • “Code of Practice” created to speed up and harmonise the development of automated driving systems
  • Framework for collection, storage and evaluation of large amounts of data in a harmonised manner created
  • Datasets for further research publicly available
  • Increased safety identified as main benefit of SAE Level 3 automated driving systems

Identification and evaluation of trust-relevant driving situation factors for automated driving (SAE Level4/5)
