The Automated Drive West
August 20 -24, 2019 | Minneapolis to Santa Clara | 2,000 Miles
VSI Labs will be taking one of our automated testing vehicles 2,000 miles cross-country in an unprecedented “Automated Drive West”. A team of three will depart on August 20th in Minneapolis, driving four days to their destination of Santa Clara, CA. VSI will be embarking on the journey with support from partners HERE, Informa and OxTS.
The purpose of VSI’s Automated Drive West is to test the benefit of using precision lanes models and enhanced GPS technology to improve the performance and safety of highway autonomous driving applications. Furthermore, the team seeks to better understand how these technologies operate across varying terrains, weather, and driving conditions.
