Driverless vehicles require rich data to operate safely, and a European consortium is harnessing the Internet of Things to help.

A consortium of European partners has demonstrated how the Internet of Things (IoT) can be used to improve autonomous driving. Autopilot (Automated driving progressed by IoT) is a large-scale pilot programme funded by the European Commission in which partners such as Ertico – ITS Europe and TNO tested IoT-enabled autonomous vehicles (AVs) in France, Finland, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain.
