L3Pilot held first showcase during 2018 EUCAR Reception & Conference in Brussels, Belgium
L3Pilot partners presented nine cars equipped with automated driving technologies during the 2018 Annual EUCAR Reception & Conference at Autoworld in Brussels, Belgium on November 6 and 7.
EUCAR invited L3Pilot, the largest European automotive research project on automated driving, as main exhibitor during the main event of the automotive association. The council regularly invites key experts and high-level decision makers from automotive research, industry and politics to Autoworld in Brussels, Belgium. Keynote speaker was Gerd Schuster, EUCAR Chairman and Senior Vice President Research, New Technologies and Innovations at BMW Group.
L3Pilot presented the test vehicles built-up by the project OEMs to the high level audience from politics and industry. The about 240 participants had the opportunity to look ahead and witness tangible evidence of tomorrow’s digitised road transportation.
During the event, L3Pilot exhibited and demonstrated automated vehicle functions inside and in front of Autoworld with nine cars. The driving demonstration included automated driving parking. Video feedback was gathered from the test drivers to learn about their most impressing or most surprising moment of the demonstration.
