VW draws nearer to driverless cars

Volkswagen continues to be the driving force toward automated driving, with the launch the AdaptIVe (Automated Driving Applications & Technologies for Intelligent Vehicles) research project on safe and efficient driverless motoring.

Volkswagen first started exploring the idea of automated driving in 2011 with its Temporary Auto Pilot (TAP) in-car system, as part of the HAVEit (Highly Automated Vehicles for Intelligent Transport) R&D project that brought together 17 partners from the European automotive sector and scientific community.
