For the first time, the #autonomous #IDBUZZ left the test site and drove directly in public traffic – of Munich’s city center.
Our CEO Herbert Diess – not as usual behind the steering wheel, but as a passenger – tested the progress recently. Watch the video and find out more about our AD strategy & technology.
That’s what it’s about:
# In April 2022, #Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess did the first autonomous test drive – no longer on the test site, but on public roads in the city center of Munich – with our partner ARGO AI.
# Important milestone for the Volkswagen Group on its way to transform from a vehicle manufacturer to a leading, software company.
# An environment recognition system from six lidar, eleven radar and fourteen cameras, distributed over the entire electric vehicle, can capture much more than any human driver can from his seat. AD will relieve congestion and increase safety in cities.
# The ID. BUZZ AD will bring its passengers to their destination in a self-driving commercial ride-pooling service operated by MOIA – starting in 2025 in Hamburg.
