‘Follow the Vehicle’: SKODA AUTO and the VSB - Technical University of Ostrava collaborate on automated car convoy project
Data required for steering input, acceleration and braking is transmitted to the autonomous car by radio, which follows the lead vehicle at a distance of up to ten metres.
The test vehicles, two ŠKODA SUPERB iV, are equipped with state-of-the-art technology in the fields of smart city and intelligent transport systems. Car-to-X technology ensures communication between the test cars and other vehicles as well as with the traffic infrastructure.
They read a variety of different data, such as the vehicle’s current location and driving-related parameters.
