Delphi Automotive demonstrated the full capabilities of its active safety technologies with the longest automated drive ever attempted in North America. The coast-to-coast trip launched in San Francisco on March 22 and covered nearly 3,400 miles finishing in New York City.
The journey allowed Delphi engineers to gather critical data and further advance the company’s active safety technology development in this rapidly growing segment of the auto industry. During the cross-country trek, the vehicle was challenged under a variety of driving conditions from changing weather and terrain to potential road hazards -- things that could never truly be tested in a lab.
Below are photos from this historic trip that were taken from the launch through the arrival in New York City nine days later.
