Volvo's Self-Driving Car Venture Gets Nod To Test On Swedish Roads

(edited)

A Volvo Cars joint venture has won approval to begin hands-free testing of its software for self-driving cars on Swedish highways, partner Veoneer said on Monday.Veoneer said the Zenuity joint venture’s software for Level 4 autonomous driving - the second highest level - would be tested in a Volvo car by trained drivers with their hands off the steering wheel at a maximum speed of 80 kilometers per hour (50 miles per hour). The venture is striving to keep up with larger rivals in the race to develop self-driving vehicles. U.S. companies are currently leading the pack, with Google’s Waymo last year winning the first approval to test cars without safety drivers on Californian public roads. General Motors’ Cruise has said it is ready to deploy a self-driving car with no manual controls, while Germany’s BMW and Audi have also secured licenses to test their vehicles.
