Audi makes big steps in legalizing autonomous cars at IAA 2015

A crucial breakthrough has been achieved at the International Motor Show (IAA) in establishing the legal framework of piloted driving and parking. Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt presented his national strategy for this key technology on Wednesday in Frankfurt. He also welcomed EU Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc and the transport ministers of the other G7 nations. Using the new Audi A4 and the concept car “Jack,” he presented the current state of driver assist systems to the visitors. The Audi A8 will lead the way in 2017 with capability for piloted driving in stop‑and‑go traffic on the highway at speeds up to 60 km/h (37.3 mph). The new legal framework is intended to allow drivers to abandon their driving tasks as long as the auto pilot is active.
