The world’s first commercial self-guided vehicle


Companies such as Google have long been testing prototypes of self-cars , but the French company Induct robotic ahead of everyone. During CES, which these days takes place in Las Vegas, Induct announced the commercial availability of its 8-seater electric car without a driver.

Navia is capable of speeds up to 20 km / h vehicle starts to move after receiving instructions from passengers via the touch screen. Upon discharge, the battery vehicle finds its own charging station and is connected to it.

Unfortunately, the current design does not allow Navia drive on public roads, the car is more designed for use in airports, parks, as well as on the territory of educational institutions and hospitals in order to reduce congestion and reduce emissions of internal combustion engines.

Navia costs about 250,000 dollars, about 40 percent cheaper than the traditional vehicle of the same capacity, resource writes Mashable.

In addition to using built-in navigation capability unmanned vehicle can educate themselves, expecting the best routes and map updating obstacles. Along with the standard navigation system uses four instruments Navia LIDAR, designed for multi-directional scanning of the environment in a radius of 200 meters. This allows you to get a complete map of the area and avoid collisions with pedestrians. On both sides of the chamber arranged LIDAR depth perception.

Public transport is not sufficiently developed. Our goal is to improve mobility, going beyond personal car and traditional modes of transportation – said CEO Pierre Lefebvre Induct.

Navia advantages already enjoyed Swiss Federal Institute of Polytechnic School of Lausanne and employees of the industrial park of the Office of the UK Atomic Energy.
