Bosch and Daimler start in San Jose service for self-driving cars


San Jose is the third largest city in California with the million population. It is located on the southern coast of the gulf San Francisco in Silicon Valley.

In the second half of 2019 in San Jose will be started the joint pilot project announced by Bosch and Daimler uniting modern services of the taxi, car-sharing and online search of carriers on the basis of self-driving cars with the level of automation 4/5 on SAE classification. Corporations signed the memorandum of understanding symbolizing intention of three parties to carry out the project with the city authorities. Within the project of Bosch and Daimler plan to provide the new service for restricted audience of users realized on the basis of Mercedes-Benz S-Class self-driving cars. They will ply in a road corridor San Carlos / Stivens-Krik between the downtown and the western part of San Jose.

Is expected that in the next two decades the population of San Jose will grow by 40%, and the city will face the growing problems in transport area. Having supported the project of Bosch and Daimler, the authorities of San Jose want to solve at the same time these problems and to adapt the transport system to future realities of the mobility based on use of self-driving cars.

"Allows to study the pilot project which we in common start how self-driving cars can help us to bring our opportunities into accord with inquiries of mobility of the future", - Sam Likkardo, the mayor of San Jose commented. "For many years we purposefully advance the idea of the self-driving car, - Dr. Michael Hafner, the vice president of Daimler AG for technologies of the drive and the systems of off-line control said. - The project will help us to understand how it is the most effective to offer service of joint use of the self-driving car to consumers of services of mobility of tomorrow". "Time to rethink the system of city transport came. Self-driving cars will help us to imagine the card of future city traffic", - Dr. Stefan Honle, the senior vice president of Robert Bosch GmbH for the systems of automatic control commented.

will show the Mobile application which support is carried out by Daimler Mobility Services how it is possible to unite intellectually services of mobility, such as car-sharing (car2go), service of search of carriers (mytaxi) and selection of an optimum route (moovel). During the test project the data allowing to define ways of integration of cars with high extent of automation of the movement in transport network will be collected. The limited community of users will have an opportunity to use self-driving cars to reach from one point another in completely automatic mode. At the same time in each car there will be a driver whose functions will include only control of the movement of the self-driving car for safety.
