AV Value Chain — Data Perspective

It may be a surprise but the roots of autonomous vehicle testing date back to 1986 with the commencement of the Eureka PROMETHEUS (Programme for a European Traffic of Highest Efficiency and Unprecedented Safety) Project, a unique collaboration between many major European automotive manufacturers, automotive suppliers, universities and institutes. The project “established the foundations for the networked mobility of tomorrow” through reaching breakthrough milestones early on in the autonomous vehicle industry. This was demonstrated for the first time in October 1994 when their research vehicle covered more than 1,000 kilometers of autonomous driving at speeds of 130km/h.
