Japanese car maker Acura, Honda’s premium brand, is testing autonomous cars in California. On Monday their test vehicle was spotted driving on Santana Row in San Jose (see photo with a glimpse from behind).
The Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD has cameras and a Velodyne Lidar mounted on the roof. First versions of the test vehicles from 2016 were without a Lidar. Honda is also testing it’s vehicles at the GoMentum Station, a former military base East of San Francisco, which today serves as test ground for autonomous cars for multiple manufacturers.
The photos were snapped by Charlotte Ernst.
