• Honda’s autonomous automobiles and technology will be showcased at ITS Entire world Congress setting up on Oct 11
  • Honda a member of L3Pilot, Europe’s to start with complete check of automated driving on general public streets
  • 4 Honda automated travel (Ad) analysis automobiles have covered twenty five,900km in Germany
  • SAE Level 3 and four self-driving features analyzed on common streets throughout seven European countries


Hamburg/Frankfurt, Germany, 11 Oct 2021 – Honda is showcasing the brand’s self-driving technology at ITS Entire world Congress 2021, as portion of the L3Pilot automated driving task. The EU-driven initiative, a joint effort of 34 companions from twelve countries, is evaluating the viability of SAE Level 3 and four self-driving features on common streets, with Honda providing 4 Honda Ad analysis automobiles to support the analysis program. The automobiles are based mostly on the system of Honda’s Legend executive saloon.  


Drawing on its world-foremost skills in autonomous systems, the Honda R&D Europe staff targeted on two analysis scenarios ‘Traffic Jam Chauffeur’ and ‘Motorway Chauffeur’, masking over twenty five,900km of tests on German streets.


Honda’s state-of-the-art Ad technology, which monitors visitors ailments on the freeway and takes total handle of the automobile from the driver if it establishes that is harmless to do so, has served test automobiles pilot much more than twenty five,900km throughout Germany. Operational info was then shared with the L3Pilot task for more analysis and examination of the effects and advantages of automated driving in Europe.


“We perspective automated driving technology as a vital part of our state-of-the-art safety technologies,” said Dr. Robert Kastner, Huge Task Chief of the L3Pilot Task at Honda R&D Europe. “Next on from our several years of analysis in this subject, we are delighted to be an active portion of this EU innovation initiative, and to support state-of-the-art analysis exercise for automated driving that is aiming to more increase safety and more lower accidents on European streets.”


Two Honda Ad analysis automobiles will be at the ITS Entire world Congress in Hamburg, becoming a member of other L3Pilot consortium check vehicles working on general public streets in and all around the display, to demonstrate the possible of automated driving technology.


Honda has very long been at the forefront globally in investigating and producing safety systems. Previously this 12 months, the enterprise fully commited to strive for zero visitors collision fatalities involving Honda motorcycles and vehicles globally by 2050.


Launched in 2017, the L3Pilot task was initiated to generate a standardised Europe-broad piloting setting for automated driving. Coordinating the actions of automakers and technology companies throughout the continent, the task raises recognition for the commercialisation of self-driving automobiles as a result of huge-scale piloting of SAE Level 3 and Level four features in passenger vehicles, from motorway and town driving to visitors jams and parking scenarios. In overall, much more than 400,000km have been driven on motorways like 200,000km in automated manner.


The ITS Entire world Congress 2021 starts on 11 Oct, with L3Pilot Driving Demonstrations and from thirteen Oct to 14 Oct. The L3Pilot task has received funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 analysis and innovation programme beneath grant agreement range 723051.
