Renault demonstrates autonomous obstacle avoidance technology

Renault CALLIE autonomous

Groupe Renault has developed an autonomous control system that can demonstrate road obstacle avoidance to the same level as professional test drivers.

The development is crucial to the future success of autonomous vehicles.

“At Groupe Renault, we are focused on being an innovation leader in products, technology and design,” said Simon Hougard, director of Renault Open Innovation Lab. “Our innovation efforts aim to develop advanced autonomous driving technologies that consumers can trust will create a safer, more comfortable journey.”

The Renault Open Innovation Lab is part of the network within the Alliance and is focused on improving safety and advancing autonomous driving technology.

The technological advancement has been inspired by and tested against professional test drivers.

It complements Renault’s existing achievements in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and vehicle safety and will support Groupe Renault’s goal of becoming one of the first brands to offer widely available "Mind Off" technology on mainstream vehicles and deploy fleets of robo-vehicles.

With this new innovation, Groupe Renault is leveraging the strength of The Alliance and supports the launch of more than 15 Renault models with different levels of autonomous driving capabilities by 2022.
