Volkswagen began testing cars with fourth-level autopilot. This means that the car is able to drive completely independently, but at the same time the driver can take control at any time.

Tests of UAVs created on the basis of an electric car e-Golf, launched in the German Hamburg on a certain stretch of three kilometers. It is part of a larger, almost 10-kilometer stretch, the tests for which will begin next year.

The cars are equipped with a complex set of equipment, which includes 14 video cameras, 11 laser sensors and seven different radars. With the help of these devices, artificial intelligence receives and processes up to five gigabytes of information. The total capacity of the system corresponds to the performance of about 15 modern laptops.

The devices track other cars in the stream, parked cars, as well as cyclists and pedestrians. Cars are able to independently change lanes, pass intersections and make difficult decisions.
