Autonomous driving tests ongoing for Groupe PSA

Groupe PSA vehicles equipped with Level 3 autonomous driving functions have been operating on open roads in France since April, as part of the European L3Pilot project.

Groupe PSA’s participation in the project is strengthening its expertise in the development of autonomous vehicles thanks to a global ecosystem of partners, including European car makers, research centers and highway authorities. The group is sharing project feedback with the other partners to help with the adoption of necessary systems and the establishment of a code of good practices.

The aim of the L3Pilot project is to test and validate autonomous driving as an efficient and safe means of transportation. Tests will all be conducted on open roads in several European countries. They will assess technical aspects, driving behavior, user acceptance, and impact on traffic and safety in various driving conditions (urban environments, major roads and freeways).

The four-year European project, launched in 2017, has an overall budget of €68m (US$76m), half of which is funded by the European Commission.
