Toyota moved to the last stage of testing driverless Lexus LS

These drones, the basis for which was the flagship sedan Lexus LS, equipped with laser range finder LIDAR, a set of special sensors and cameras as well as high-precision system for determining the location of the car.

Lexus will soon begin testing unmanned vehicles on public roads in Belgium. We are talking about drones on the flagship LS sedan. The test will last 13 months and the venue will be Brussels. It is known that during the test races at the wheel of the Japanese drone will sit operators: at any moment they can take control of a car in their hands.

The Japanese has equipped its drones with laser range finder LIDAR, a particular set of sensors and cameras, and high-precision positioning system.

Autonomous Lexus LS are going to use for data collection in the framework of the research project L3Pilot to which, among other automakers, joined by the Japanese company Toyota. One of the key organizers of this project is the European Union. To test the capabilities of drones plan to build a hundred cars. The geographical spread of the project will cover 11 countries.
