Drive was used by Delphi engineers to research and collect information that will help further advance active safety technology.
Delphi Automotive PLC announced it has completed the longest automated drive in North America, traveling from San Francisco to New York in the first coast-to-coast trip ever taken by an automated vehicle. Nearly 3,400 miles were covered, with 99 percent of the drive in fully automated mode.
The drive was used by Delphi engineers to research and collect information that will help further advance active safety technology. The team collected nearly three terabytes of data—about 30 percent of all of the printed material in the Library of Congress.
The nine-day trip crossed 15 states and the District of Columbia. Along the way, the vehicle encountered complex driving situations such as traffic circles, construction zones, bridges, tunnels, aggressive drivers and a variety of weather conditions.
