Lexus will bring selfdriving cars to public roads in BelgiumJuly 11, 2019
Lexus will soon begin testing unmanned vehicles in Belgium on public roads. Machines with automatic control systems will start testing in the center of Brussels.
UAVs, built on the basis of the flagship Lexus LS sedan, are equipped with LIDAR laser range finders, a set of sensors and cameras, as well as a high-precision positioning system. At the same time during the tests, which will last 13 months, the operators will be sitting behind the wheel of the car, ready to take control at any time.
The latest version of the unmanned Lexus prototype, created on the LS model platform, was shown in early 2019 at the CES consumer electronics show in Las Vegas. On the car, called the P4, demonstrated two technologies called the Guardian and Chauffeur. The first mode was created to “help a person control the machine, not replace it.” It is assumed that this is a complex of auxiliary systems of semi-automatic control.
Chauffeur mode, on the contrary, involves a fully automatic control without driver assistance. The equipment includes a laser rangefinder LIDAR with eight sensor heads, two additional cameras, as well as a set of new sensors.
