What is the Automated Drive Series?

The Automated Drive Series is a quarterly, coast-to-coast and border-to-border mission to examine the functionality of ADAS and AV technology. The Automated Drive Series is designed to expose AV & ADAS solutions to a diverse set of conditions and driving environments. Each drive includes shadow mode operation whereby all the results are recorded for post event analysis. The series is also a way to promote your technologies in a novel and practical way in an era where traditional conferences and expositions will be limited.

What type of vehicle is VSI driving?

VSI's research vehicle is a 2018 Ford Fusion equipped with a by-wire control system, along with many other AV/ADAS technologies. A Linux-based computer inside the vehicle acts as a domain controller for AV functions.
