It is being reported by certain sections of media that Tata may soon be testing India’s first self-driven car on Bengaluru roads. The company is said to be seeking necessary permissions for conducting such tests, and a tentative date for tests would be soon announced.
As per reports, Tata Elxsi has re-engineered their two sedans and has equipped them with Lidar radars, stereoscopic camera and ultrasonic sensors. An onboard computer is placed for receiving signals from these equipments, which would in-turn used by the self-driving mechanism to control steering, and self-navigate the roads.
With ARAI developing autonomous car prototype and Tata also being interested in developing autonomous cars suddenly things seem to be gathering momentum in India.
