MobilityDriverless car: the ten lessons learned
In May 2015, Swisscom, together with the Swiss Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communications (DETEC) and the German Autonomos Labs, put the first driverless car on Swiss roads. However, in the future, Swisscom will not build cars but thus gather experience for the mobility of the future.
A final report summarises what Swisscom experienced and learned in this process. The report talks about grasses, for example, which became seemingly unsurmountable obstacles. Or what you had to do so that sensors recognise LED-based traffic lights better. Or which map technology was most suitable for use on Swiss roads and what turned out to be the greatest challenge of Zurich’s city traffic. And, last but not least, how society could benefit from driverless cars.
