With most automakers coming out with some sort of autonomous tech of their own, you will really need to offer something new to stand out and Audi is doing just that.
The new Audi A8 will be the first vehicle in the market to come with an SAE Level 3 autonomous system. Called the AI Traffic Jam Pilot, the name itself would probably tell you what the system can do.
According to Audi, the driver can choose to let the car take over when they are in a nose-to-tail traffic. In fact, the system would able to handle up to 60km/h on the highway and multi-lane motorways. The reason why it is a Level 3 is because the driver can leave it up to the car completely, they won’t have to pay attention to the road ahead.
The new Audi A8 will be arriving this December but the autonomous system will only be released based on the regulations in each country.
