Autonomous Vehicle By Delphi Goes Coast-to-Coast

Delphi Automotive's autonomous Audi has completed a coast-to-coast trip across the United States; 3500 miles starting in San Francisco ending in New York City.


(A video ride with the Delphi Autonomous vehicle)

Demonstrated on the streets of Las Vegas at CES 2015, Delphi’s automated driving vehicle leveraged a full suite of technologies and features to make this trip possible, including:
  • Radar, vision and Advanced Drive Assistance Systems (ADAS)
  • Multi-domain controller: High-end microprocessor to seamlessly drive multiple features and functions
  • V2V/V2X: Wireless vehicle communication technology extends the range of existing ADAS functionality
  • Intelligent software that enables the vehicle to make complex, human-like decisions for real-world automated driving
    • Traffic Jam Assist
    • Automated Highway Pilot with Lane Change (on-ramp to off-ramp highway pilot)
    • Automated Urban Pilot
    • Automated Parking and Valet
Delphi’s active safety technologies enable the vehicle to instantaneously make complex decisions, like stopping and then proceeding at a four-way stop, timing a highway merge or calculating the safest maneuver around a bicyclist on a city street.

Soon now, yes, very soon, I will have my autonomous taxi - and then I shall bid my own vehicle adieu. Call it what you will; Larry Niven's bubble cars from World out of Time (1976) or the tin cabbie from James Blish's 1957 novel Cities in Flight. A more recent take can be found in Alan Dean Foster's 2006 novel Sagramanda; see the automated taxi.
