Karsan produces an electric public transport in Turkey and exported to the world, he began to work to gain autonomous driving characteristics Electric announced that the Autonomous Attack, received the first order. BSCI, one of the leading technology companies in Romania, ordered one Autonomous Atak Electric to be used within the Industrial Park in Ploeşti. Otonom Atak Electric, which will provide pilot service in a defined area, will be delivered to BSCI by the end of the year. Karsan, which has achieved many important firsts in the field of technology, will realize the first autonomous project sales in Europe in its 8 meter class with the delivery it will make to Romania.
For more than 50 years in the automotive industry of Turkey's Karsan is located in a single location independent multi-brand car manufacturer, also a Turkish company which ADASTEC CORP. Within the scope of its cooperation with Atak Electric, it received its first order in a short time in the Atak Electric model, where it started to work on Level-4 autonomous driving. BSCI, one of the leading technology companies in Romania, has ordered one Autonomous Atak Electric to be used within the Industrial Park in Ploeşti, the country. Within the scope of the project, Otonom Atak Electric, which will provide pilot service in a defined area within the Industrial Park, will be delivered to BSCI until the end of the year.
“The first order from Otonom Atak Electric to Europe”
Despite the new type coronavirus (Covid-19) epidemic that influenced the world, Karsan CEO Okan Baş said, “At Autonomous Atak Electric, where we aim to bring level-4 autonomous driving characteristics, We took our order from BSCI, one of the important technology companies of Romania. This order strengthens our belief in the project. Autonomous Atak Electric, whose prototype will be completed in August, will be the first electric bus with autonomous driving characteristics adapted to real road conditions. In addition, with this order, which we plan to deliver by the end of the year, we will be selling the first autonomous project in Europe in the 8 meter class. While continuing our work without slowing down with our pioneering approach in sustainable transportation solutions, I hope that we will survive the epidemic that affects the world as soon as possible and regain healthy days. ” said.
Level-4 Autonomous Will Be Integrated
In the project to be realized by Karsan's R&D team, Atak Electric will be equipped with Level-4 Autonomous driving features. Under the project, the Turkish company ADASTEC CORP, which carries out studies on autonomous vehicles. Collaborating with Karsan, it plans to complete the prototype-first Autonomous Atak Electric vehicle in August. ADASTEC CORP. The test, simulation and validation studies of Atak Electric, which will be provided with autonomous driving features by integrating Level-4 Autonomous software developed by Atak Electric into the electrical-electronic architecture and electric vehicle software, will continue until the end of the year.
