Global automotive supplier Continental has received Nevada’s ‘Autonomous Vehicle Testing License’ – a state approval from the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to test automated driving on the state’s public roads. Continental’s testing license is for the company’s highly automated vehicle, and represents the first license granted by the Nevada DMV to an automotive supplier.
After completing driving demonstrations on December 18 in Carson City, Nevada, USA, the DMV’s Autonomous Review Committee approved Continental’s safety plans, employee training, system functions and accident reporting mechanisms. Following approvals, Continental will receive its testing license and red license plate featuring an infinity sign to represent the car of the future. The plate is designed to be easily recognised by law enforcement and the public at large. It will only be used for licensed test vehicles for automated driving.
“At Continental, we continue to invest in research and development for next generation technologies – such as our highly automated vehicle – that will drive us toward a safer, more efficient and more comfortable future,” said Dr. Elmar Degenhart, chairman of the executive board of Continental.
