On July 24, the RobeSafe research group (Luis Miguel Bergasa, Department of Electronics, Escuela Politécnica Superior UAH) held a driving test on the External Campus of the Universidad de Alcalá. Our autonomous electric car, based on a TABBY EVO Platform by Open Motors®, demonstrated its new enhanced skills in terms of waypoint tracking based control (Rodrigo Gutierrez Moreno), EKF based localization using GNSS and Wheel Odometry devices and a Drive-By-Wire system, all of them integrated using ROS communications. Furthermore, we give a step forward regarding V2U paradigm (Vehicle-To-User) testing our HMIs (Human Machine Interfaces), which help us to monitorize (Javier Araluce Ruiz) the main parameters of our vehicle (such as the battery state, amount of GLONASS and GPS satellites or the car speed) as well as the possibility to introduce a route using a central touch screen in a similar way to some automotive companies such as Tesla.

We are super excited to keep working and test our DL based perception systems on our NVIDIA Jetson embedded computing boards in the next driving tests to enhance the efficiency and reliability of our system!
