The tested functions cover a wide range from parking to overtaking, and urban intersection driving. These tests will provide valuable data for evaluation of technical aspects, user acceptance, driving and travel behaviour, and impact on traffic and society.

With its large coverage of driving situations, L3Pilot is the first project worldwide demonstrating and testing a comprehensive setup of automated driving functions.
