AV on 257 mile fully automated historic highway drive

Vueron takes AV on 257 mile fully automated historic highway drive with one LiDAR sensor

The Challenge…. Long distance highway drive using only 1 LiDAR for complete control of AV


Renowned for its cutting-edge LiDAR perception software technology, Vueron Technology received one of the few self-driving permits issued by the South Korean government in January of this year. Following receipt of the permit, Vueron executed a 414-kilometer (257 miles), fully automated, LIDAR-only drive from the capital city of Seoul to the southern port city of Busan, at a maximum speed of 100 km/hr. The mandated safety driver did not hold the steering wheel at any time during the full five hours of the historic drive (No camera, no radar, no GPS or HD map is used.)
