We told you about Google working on the autonomous car project and now Volvo, who announced that they too will be working on a driverless car in December, confirmed their autonomous Drive Me project is underway in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Volvo said that the Project that they have undertaken consists of 100 autonomous prototypes which will be driven in real world conditions on roads in and around Gothenburg. Approximately 50 km of roadways will be part of the test and they include everything from commuter arteries to motorways that are subject to frequent queues.
According to Volvo Technical Specialist Erik Coelingh, "The test cars are now able to handle lane following, speed adaption and merging traffic all by themselves. This is an important step towards our aim that the final 'Drive Me' cars will be able to drive the whole test route in highly autonomous mode."
Volvo says that project Drive Me is notable because it brings all key players - including legislators, transport authorities and customers - to the table. The testing will continue till Volvo smoothens every crease.
