The traffic police is considering the use of self-driving cars for the driver’s license exam. This was announced on November 27 by Nikolai Sheyukhin, deputy chief of the GUOBDD of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia.
“Here is an exam car – with cameras based on an unmanned vehicle, touch pedals, an inspector tablet. I’m not saying that he will be there tomorrow, but we are also working on it. The technique that stands: a system, a digitized road. The system lays down the route, announces the driver’s candidate, assesses it, the inspector controls the system, “RIA Novosti quotes him.
Sheyukhin noted that the unmanned vehicle system should be configured similarly to the navigation software. At the same time, at the moment, there is no question that there is no human examiner in the car.
On November 8, it became known that Russia will launch testing of an unmanned driving system in a stream of cars.
By the end of the year, V2X equipment (onboard equipment, sensors designed for receiving and transmitting data) of Fort Telecom, MVS Group, Kaspersky Lab, Sreda Solutions, Keysight and FSUE NAMI will be tested. Based on the results of testing, a unified technical standard for data transmission will be developed, today it is not in Russia.
