Today the the VisLab Intercontinental Autonomous Challenge (VIAC) has been launched officially in Milan, Piazza Duomo. Together with the Overland trucks they will make a 13,000 km journey to Shanghai in China using driverless solar energy powered vehicles. The project will not only showcase the benefits of green transport, but the automated vehicles will also use IBM Human Centric solutions to collect CO2 pollutants in regions through which the vehicles will pass. The sensors will be on the 22nd of July when the convoy will be in Rome….stay tuned!!!!
