Yesterday, the European project L3Pilot was kicked off in Wolfsburg, home to the project coordinator Volkswagen. Focusing on large-scale piloting of SAE Level 3 functions, the project brings 1,000 test drivers and 100 vehicles to the roads in 11 European countries. This makes L3Pilot one of the widest reaching projects in Europe. At the last ITS European Congress in June, the European Commission awarded a cheque of almost €36 million to the Project. During the First European Conference on Connected and Automated Driving, Commissioner Moedas already lauded L3Pilot: “This project is huge, bringing together: car manufacturers, research institutes, insurance suppliers, universities and others. It will really show Europe’s readiness for the technology! And where the gaps are that need to be filled.” L3Pilot will for the next 48 month to address these gaps.
