France creates an international research chair on automated vehicles
Baptized “Automated Vehicles- Drive for You”, the chair will unite researchers from MINES ParisTech's Robotics Centre with teams from international partner institutions — Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China, the University of California, Berkeley in the United States and Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland.
Supported by the MINES ParisTech Foundation, with the manufacturers contributing €3.7 million in funds, the chair will work for five years on the topic of automated driving to :
- Expand knowledge of self-driving vehicles
- Develop intelligent onboard systems.
- Get self-driving vehicles on the road in Asia, Europe and the United States.
