KARSAN started working for public transportation vehicles with autonomous driving characteristics. KARSAN, who first worked on ATAK Electric, announced that it would bring ATAK Electric to Level-4 Autonomous driving features.
KARSAN, which has studies on autonomous vehicles and cooperates with ADASTEC, plans to complete the first Autonomous ATAK Electric vehicle at the prototype level in August 2020.
The test and validation studies of ATAK Electric will be continued until the end of the year by integrating Level-4 Autonomous software developed by ADASTEC into the ATAK Electric electrical-electronic architecture and electric vehicle software.
The prototype will be completed in August
Emphasizing that they continue to invest in technology and R&D despite the coronavirus epidemic, KARSAN CEO Okan Baş said,
“At ATAK Electric, which was developed by our R&D team and started mass production in September 2019, it is dynamic without Level A-4 Autonomous driver assistance. Our work has begun to ensure that all driving requirements are met by an automatic driving system. In this regard, we also use special equipment, such as RADAR, LiDAR, thermal camera, to detect all living and inanimate assets around the vehicle in order to perform automatic driving functions.
We will perform the simulation and validation tests of autonomous ATAK Electric, whose first prototype will be completed in August 2020, in our Hasanağa factory in Bursa, Turkey.
As of the end of the year, we will bring Autonomous ATAK Electric to the ready-to-use level. ”
