Self-driving Tata Tiago participates in UK Autodrive trials
Tata Motors European Technical Centre (TMETC), the wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Motors and a UK-based centre of excellence for automotive design and engineering, is playing an active role in the ‘UK Autodrive’ consortium project to demonstrate and integrate driverless cars into everyday life.
The self-driving cars, like the modified Tata Tiago used, will have technology that allows the vehicles to ‘talk’ to each other in order to adjust to developing traffic situations. The initial trails began in October 2016 at the HORIBA-MIRA test track and ended in June 2017. The on-road trials will take the cars into progressively complex urban scenarios in the mentioned cities to gauge the technology’s effectiveness.
