Seeing how many automotive companies are involved in the design of autonomous cars, it can be assumed that soon the choice of such cars will be so great that everyone will find a model that suits his preferences. One of the companies that is also working on this type of technology is Honda’s Acura, which has been doing this for a long time and has just showed off another generation of its prototype.
The vehicle is based on the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD model and has been significantly improved over the previous version. The manufacturer has equipped with improved sensor versions that can create an even more accurate map of the environment, as well as completely new algorithms that better handle the challenges faced by the vehicle.
