Exporting the electric public transportation vehicles it produces in Turkey to the world, Karsan offers autonomous driving features. kazanAutonomous Atak Electric, in which it announced that it has started working to BSCI, one of Romania's leading technology companies, has ordered an Autonomous Atak Electric to be used in the Industrial Park in the city of Ploeşti. Otonom Atak Electric, which will provide pilot service in a defined area within the scope of the project, will be delivered to BSCI by the end of the year. Karsan, which has achieved many important firsts in the field of technology, will have realized the sale of the first autonomous project in Europe in the 8-meter class, with the delivery 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”
Noting that the excitement of innovative production continues in the Karsan family despite the New Type of Coronavirus (Covid-19) epidemic that affected the world, Karsan CEO Okan Baş said, “Level-4 autonomous driving features. kazanIn the Autonomous Atak Electric, which we aim to develop, we soon attracted the attention of Europe and received our order from BSCI, one of the important technology companies in Romania. This order further strengthens our belief in the project. Autonomous Atak Electric, whose prototype we will complete in August, will be the first electric bus with autonomous driving features adapted to real road conditions. In addition, with this order, which we plan to deliver by the end of the year, we will have realized the sale of the first autonomous project in Europe in the 8-meter class. As we continue our work without slowing down with our pioneering approach in sustainable transportation solutions, I hope that we can get through the epidemic that affected the whole world as soon as possible and have healthy days again.” said.
Level-4 Autonomous Will Be Integrated
