With all its sensor technology, the modified e-Golf looks a bit like a spaceship darting through sunny Hamburg. Also noteworthy: No one has their hands on the wheel. In theory, at any rate – the specially trained driver Wojciech Derendarz attentively monitors the drive and is ready to assume control at any moment. He is sitting in a car that is tasked with providing valuable data about autonomous driving. The various sensors on the roof, on the fenders and in front and back scan the surroundings with lasers, with radar, ultrasound and cameras.
Travelling with radar and laser
More than a few denizens of the city have been pleasantly astonished by the sight of autonomous e-Golfs* driving on the streets of Hamburg. The driver only grabs the wheel in exceptional circumstances. The car is testing autonomous driving!
