SKODA IS TESTING A NEW PROJECT WHERE ONE PERSON CAN DRIVE TWO CARS

Skoda and technical University of Ostrava are collaborating on new technologies for assistance systems as part of their join ” follow the vehicle” project.

The principal behind the “follow the vehicle” project is “two cars, one driver”.

The lead vehicle is driven by a human, determining route, speed, Lane and other parameters.

Data required for steering input, acceleration and braking is transmitted to the autonomous car by radio, which follows the lead vehicle at a distance of up to ten meters.
