The driverless Audi Urban Mobility based on the Audi TTS has made a stunning performance at the Geneva Motor Show.
With the technology demonstrator from the “Audi Urban Mobility” research project, Audi proves that a car can perform maneuvers safely, even without the driver. At the Volkswagen Group’s event on the evening before the Geneva Motor Show, the technology demonstrator based on the Audi TTS drove independently onto the stage.
This car is the direct result of a research project underway at the Volkswagen Group Automotive Innovation Laboratory (VAIL) in Palo Alto (California). The joint project for the advancement of automotive technology is led by the Volkswagen Group Electronics Research Laboratory (ERL) and Stanford University.
The aim of the project is not to make the driver, or the pleasure of driving, dispensable in the future. Its main focus is to carry out an in-depth assessment of current and future driver assistance technologies. The results and findings of this work will help Audi to further enhance the driving experience and vehicle safety for generations to come.
