SCOOP success at GCDC 2011!
Smooth driving for the KTH/Scania Team!
"We went through the Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge in style. Our system delivered a consistently flawless performance and all the autonomous functions worked perfectly. Everyone is very, very happy," says Sagar Behere, one of the researchers leading the KTH/Scania team.
"The KTH/Scania truck ended up 4th (a 16 ton truck simply isn't as agile as a car :o) but the judges were very impressed and Scania is really happy. "
"What's more, the Swedish teams totally dominated, with Halmstad and Chalmers finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively with their Volvo cars. That's 3 Swedish teams in the top 4!"
