SF Motors announced it has begun test driving autonomous technology on the streets of Silicon Valley after receiving a permit from California’s Department of Motor Vehicles to test autonomous vehicle technology on public roads.
SF Motors finalized a multi-year $2.5-million agreement with the University of Michigan in late 2016 to conduct proprietary joint research on advanced automated driving systems. This investment has led to major progress in autonomous technologies such as heterogeneous sensor fusion, multi-object detection and tracking, and high-performance vehicle motion control. These technologies and breakthroughs are supporting new product development and extensive testing validation at SF Motors focused on delivering reliable, safe and affordable products to customers. Test drives are being conducted in California and Michigan, with further research expected to continue to advance the technologies.
SF Motors is also testing autonomous driving vehicles on the roads in China. The company plans to publicly announce and unveil its intelligent electric concept vehicle for global markets in this March.
