L3Pilot tests the viability of automated driving as a safe and efficient means of transportation on public roads. The project focuses on large-scale piloting of automated driving functions of SAE Levels 3 and, partially, Level 4 on public roads across Europe. The functionality of the systems is exposed to variable conditions across seven European countries, including cross-border routes.
The technologies being tested cover a wide range of driving situations, including parking, overtaking on highways and driving through urban intersections. The tests will provide valuable data for evaluating technical aspects, user acceptance, driving and travel behaviour, as well as impact on traffic and safety.
With the comprehensive piloting of automated driving functions in test vehicles, L3Pilot will pave the way for large-scale field tests of series cars on public roads. L3Pilot partners will define a set of rules for system engineering and safety validation of automated systems, captured in a Code of Practice for Automated Driving.
