Groupe Renault proved autonomous systems can rival professional drivers

2017 - CALLIE, un véhicule autonome de Renault

Groupe Renault announced that it has developed an autonomous control system that can take on and overcome challenging driving scenarios.

In an industry first, the system demonstrated obstacle avoidance as well as professional drivers as shown in the video above in an autonomous Renault Zoe called Callie – a stray from the performance spectrum with the Renault Zoe E-Sport unveiled earlier this year with Nissan GT-R performance.


As the video illustrates, the system learns from the professional drivers and with the autonomous system activated, it displayed reflexes in avoiding obstacles that rivals the professional drivers.

“At Groupe Renault, we are focused on being an innovation leader in products, technology and design,” said Director of Renault Open Innovation Lab – Silicon Valley, Simon Hougard. “Our innovation efforts aim to develop advanced autonomous driving technologies that consumers can trust will create a safer, more comfortable journey.”

The Renault Open Innovation Lab is a subsidiary within the Alliance focused on improving safety and developing advance autonomous driving technology where it will help drive Groupe Renault’s goal of becoming one of the pioneering brands to offer “Mind Off” technology on mass-produced vehicles.

Utilising the support of the Alliance made up of Mitsubishi and Nissan, Groupe Renaults aims to oversee the launch of more than 15 Renault models with different levels of autonomous driving capabilities by 2022.
