Researchers forecast that by 2025 we’ll see approximately 8 million autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicles on the road
A self-driving car, also known as an autonomous vehicle, driver-less car, or robo-car, is a vehicle that is capable of sensing its environment and moving safely with little or no human input.
The challenges that these vehicles face go well beyond the available technology.
Driving is one of the most complicated tasks we (humans) do on a regular basis. We rely on our senses, experience and understanding of other human drivers to make decisions about how we drive.
Technology is moving forward rapidly and we believe that its not if but when we see autonomous cars taking to at least our CBD roads here in Australia.
A critical part of any new vehicle technology is testing. This is where Performance Driving Australia can assist.
Performance Driving Australia has had involvement with manufacturers testing vehicle equipment and technology in the past and is actively looking for opportunities to work with clients in this sector.
