• Honda’s autonomous motor vehicles and technological know-how will be showcased at ITS Environment Congress starting up on Oct eleven
  • Honda a member of L3Pilot, Europe’s first comprehensive exam of automated driving on community roadways
  • 4 Honda automated push (Advertisement) research motor vehicles have coated 25,900km in Germany
  • SAE Level 3 and 4 self-driving functions examined on regular roadways throughout seven European nations around the world


Hamburg/Frankfurt, Germany, eleven Oct 2021 – Honda is showcasing the brand’s self-driving technological know-how at ITS Environment Congress 2021, as component of the L3Pilot automated driving venture. The EU-driven initiative, a joint hard work of 34 companions from 12 nations around the world, is evaluating the viability of SAE Level 3 and 4 self-driving functions on regular roadways, with Honda providing four Honda Advertisement research motor vehicles to assist the research method. The motor vehicles are centered on the system of Honda’s Legend govt saloon.  


Drawing on its environment-primary knowledge in autonomous systems, the Honda R&D Europe team centered on two research situations ‘Traffic Jam Chauffeur’ and ‘Motorway Chauffeur’, covering above 25,900km of screening on German roadways.


Honda’s sophisticated Advertisement technological know-how, which screens targeted traffic disorders on the highway and can take full handle of the car or truck from the driver if it establishes that is risk-free to do so, has helped test motor vehicles pilot a lot more than 25,900km throughout Germany. Operational information was then shared with the L3Pilot venture for additional research and evaluation of the effects and added benefits of automated driving in Europe.


“We watch automated driving technological know-how as a vital part of our sophisticated safety technologies,” said Dr. Robert Kastner, Substantial Venture Chief of the L3Pilot Venture at Honda R&D Europe. “Next on from our a long time of research in this subject, we are delighted to be an lively component of this EU innovation initiative, and to assist sophisticated research exercise for automated driving that is aiming to additional boost security and additional lower incidents on European roadways.”


Two Honda Advertisement research motor vehicles will be at the ITS Environment Congress in Hamburg, signing up for other L3Pilot consortium exam vehicles running on community roadways in and all around the show, to demonstrate the prospective of automated driving technological know-how.


Honda has extended been at the forefront globally in studying and creating security systems. Previously this calendar year, the company fully commited to try for zero targeted traffic collision fatalities involving Honda motorcycles and vehicles globally by 2050.


Released in 2017, the L3Pilot venture was initiated to generate a standardised Europe-large piloting setting for automated driving. Coordinating the actions of automakers and technological know-how vendors throughout the continent, the venture raises awareness for the commercialisation of self-driving motor vehicles by significant-scale piloting of SAE Level 3 and Level 4 functions in passenger vehicles, from motorway and metropolis driving to targeted traffic jams and parking situations. In whole, a lot more than 400,000km have been driven on motorways such as two hundred,000km in automated mode.


The ITS Environment Congress 2021 starts on eleven Oct, with L3Pilot Driving Demonstrations and from 13 Oct to 14 Oct. The L3Pilot venture has obtained funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme below grant arrangement amount 723051.
