    Delphi Takes An Autonomous Cross-Country Road Trip

      What if a computer drove you across the United States?

    Delphi Automotive is undertaking an ambitious cross-country road trip.

    The supplier announced that it will be taking an Audi SQ5 fitted with the latest self-driving tech on a trip from San Francisco to New York City. The trip will begin on March 22nd and end during the first week of the New York Auto Show. Delphi is planning to run the vehicle for 6 to 8 hours per day with two engineers in the vehicle to make sure all of the tech is working properly.

    "Delphi had great success testing its car in California and on the streets of Las Vegas. Now it’s time to put our vehicle to the ultimate test by broadening the range of driving conditions. This drive will help us collect invaluable data in our quest to deliver the best automotive grade technologies on the market," said Jeff Owens, Delphi’s chief technology officer.

    The Audi SQ5 in question mostly looks stock, but features a number of car-to-car communication technologies such as radar, cameras, and lidar laser mapping sensors.
