Citroen unveils Grand C4 Picasso autonomous driving prototype

On the opening day of this year’s Geneva International Auto Show on March 7, Citroen unveiled the Grand C4 Picasso autonomous driving car prototype.

The R&D for the Grand C4 Picasso autonomous driving prototype was carried out by the PSA Group, which owns Citroen. It reflects an early practical application of the know-how gained through over 120,000 kilometers of autonomous driving experience in Europe.

Citroen also unveiled its latest driver support system, which it calls Advanced Comfort, at the motor show. This is a system that was developed as a first step toward automatic driving.

Various support systems are in place such as Park Assist, 360-Degree Vision, Active Safety Brake, Adaptive Cruise Control with stop-and-go feature, speed limit information, and Driver Attention Alert.
