Canada’s First Self-Driving Car Hits the Roads

Canada has joined the ranks of countries aiming to increase road safety and ease traffic congestion with the development of self-driving cars. Recently a vehicle dubbed the Autonomoose autonomously drove a crew of Ontario Ministry of Transportation officials to the podium of a launch event to introduce the first car approved to hit the roads under the province’s automated vehicle pilot program. Minister of Transportation Steven Del Duca jokingly saluted the courage of the media for calmly holding their ground as the driverless Autonomoose pulled toward the front rows of the assembled crowd. But enhanced safety is a key benefit of the move to self-driving cars, and NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 technology is helping make it a reality.
