-Chinese manufacturer, Changan broke the record for the largest parade of autonomous cars
-Whole attempt took nine minutes and seven seconds to complete
Almost every car manufacturer is working on their very own autonomous technology and have plenty to boast about. However one Chinese manufacturer, Changan has gone ahead and broken the Guinness record for the largest parade of autonomous cars.
The record attempt was performed in November 2018 at the Dianjiang test track, near Changan's headquarters in the Chinese city of Chongqing. During the attempt, 56 crossovers drove along a 3.2km section of the track at 30kmph. According to Guinness World Records, one car was disqualified because the safety driver took control of the vehicle for a portion of the parade.
Changan made a few changes to the car’s standard assisted driving system. Engineers reportedly improved the system's ability to detect the edge of its lane and position of the car in front. Each car was separated by about two car lengths, and the whole attempt took nine minutes and seven seconds to complete.
