AUTOPILOT will bring IoT to advance the evolution of highly and fully automated vehicles

AUTOPILOT will bring IoT technology to the automotive world to enable safer highly automated driving. IoT enabled automated vehicles deployed at six pilot tests sites, in France, Finland, Korea, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands, will generate data to evaluate the technical performance of the Internet of Things.
