World's largest self-driving test scheduled for next week

Vanderbilt University in collaboration with the Department of Transportation, as well as Toyota, Nissan and General Motors

scheduled for next weekthe world's largest simultaneous test of unmanned vehicles. During the test, 100 unmanned vehicles will be tracked simultaneously. Tests will be held in Tennessee on a 6-kilometer stretch of I-24. This area was chosen because it has 300 cameras that can simultaneously record the actions of the test vehicles. Nissan Rouge, Toyota RAV4, Cadillac XT5 cars will take part in the test. One of the objectives of the study is to analyze the interaction of independently moving cars with each other and determine the influence of one of the cars on the movement of the entire group of cars. Through the trial, the researchers hope to provide data that could lead to advances in autonomous driving.
