Delphi automated vehicle completes coast-to-coast drive

Delphi Automotive has completed the longest automated drive in North America, traveling from San Francisco to New York in the first coast-to-coast trip ever taken by an automated vehicle. (Earlier post.) Nearly 3,400 miles (5,472 km) were covered with 99% of the drive in fully automated mode.

The drive was used by Delphi engineers to research and collect information that will help further advance active safety technology. The team collected nearly three terabytes of data—about 30% of all of the printed material in the Library of Congress.

The nine-day trip crossed 15 states and the District of Columbia. Along the way, the

vehicle encountered complex driving situations such as traffic circles, construction zones, bridges, tunnels, aggressive drivers and a variety of weather conditions.

Delphi’s automated driving vehicle is equipped with a full suite of advanced technologies and features, many of which are already on the market today including collision mitigation, integrated radar and camera systems, forward collision and lane departure warning.
