Autonomous Land transport project goes ahead in France


The institute of technological research SystemX, based in Paris, France, has launched the Safe Autonomous Land Transport Project in partnership with SNCF and Alstom. The objective of the project is to design a system of environmental perception based on a combination of complementary sensors (radars, Lidar cameras, etc.). At first, this system will be modelled in a laboratory to test the technological selection criteria of the sensors and carry out preliminary virtual validation followed by life-sized site tests on a SNCF locomotive between Villeneuve Saint-Georges and Montereau.  (ben) www.sncf.fr www.alstom.com www.irt-systemx.fr
