DENSO Tests Smart-Driving Technology
July 17, 2014—DENSO Corp. began testing advanced driving support technology in Japan last month in an effort to develop safe-driving technologies that, “reduce driver workload,” the company announced Tuesday.
The tests were performed on a public road in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, and included automated driving scenarios like automatic lane changes and other maneuvers. DENSO has tested the technology on its test course in the country, but the company decided to move to a public road to test situations that would not occur on a test course.
DENSO conducted the tests as part of a Vehicle Safety Technology Project Team initiative to reduce traffic accidents. The Team is organized by the Aichi Prefectural Government and includes other companies or organizations operating in the area.
