Project SARTRE (or Safe Road Trains for the Environment) has successfully completed a 125 mile test involving three autonomous cars on public roadways in Spain. What differentiates SARTRE from Google’s driverless car is that SARTRE consists of a caravan of autonomous vehicles with a leading car driven by a professional driver. Each vehicle behind the leader follows the one in front of it using a wireless network accompanied by a litany of cameras, radar sensors, and laser guidance systems that judge speed and direction. The goal of project, which is being funded by the European Commission, is to increase motorway safety and environmental conservation without having to heavily modify the existing road systems.
