Delphi to Launch First Coast-to-Coast Automated Drive

| March 14, 2015

Delphi automated drive

Delphi Automotive PLC (NYSE: DLPH) will demonstrate the full capabilities of its active safety technologies with a coast-to-coast trip that it will launch near the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco on March 22 and will cover approximately 3,500 miles, ending in New York.

The goal is to allow Delphi engineers to gather critical data and further advance the company’s active safety technology development in this rapidly growing segment of the auto industry.

During the cross-country trek, the vehicle will be challenged under a variety of driving conditions from changing weather and terrain to potential road hazards — things that could never truly be tested in a lab. “Delphi had great success testing its car in California and on the streets of Las Vegas,” said Jeff Owens, Delphi’s chief technology officer. “Now it’s time to put our vehicle to the ultimate test by broadening the range of driving conditions.”

Delphi automated driveDelphi’s range of automated driving vehicle technologies and features include:

  • Radar, vision and Advanced Drive Assistance Systems (ADAS) Multi-domain controller: High-end microprocessor to seamlessly drive multiple features and functions
  • V2V/V2X: Wireless vehicle communication technology extends the range of existing ADAS functionality Intelligent software that enables the vehicle to make complex, human-like decisions for real-world automated driving
  • Traffic Jam Assist Automated Highway Pilot with Lane Change (on-ramp to off-ramp highway pilot) Automated Urban Pilot Automated Parking and Valet Delphi’s active safety technologies enable the vehicle to instantaneously make complex decisions, like stopping and then proceeding at a four-way stop, timing a highway merge or calculating the safest maneuver around a bicyclist on a city street.

Many of these driving scenarios have been a limitation for much of the current technology on the market today.
