In May, Lyft’s team announced the deployment of 30 self-driving cars, equipped with Aptiv’s autonomous driving platform. These vehicles are offered to the public in Las Vegas via the Lyft app.
The vehicle was factory-equipped with several advanced driver assistance functions by the original manufacturer Volvo Cars, including a collision avoidance function with automatic emergency braking as well as functions for detecting driver alertness and road sign information.
