UNECE to experience Tesla FSD V12 at GVRA 2024 this week

    On May 23rd, at the Grand Ridge Virtual Association (GRVA) 2024, Tesla, along with other automakers, will show off the best of their autonomous driving solutions.

    The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) is one of five regional commissions of the United Nations Economic and Social Council. It aims to promote pan-European economic integration and cooperation among its 56 member States. The UNECE covers a wide range of areas, including economic cooperation and integration, environment, housing and land management, population, statistics, sustainable energy, timber, trade, and transport.

    Within the UNECE, the Working Party on Automated/Autonomous and Connected Vehicles (GRVA) focuses on developing international regulations, guidelines, and interpretations for the safety and performance of automated and connected vehicles. The GRVA operates under the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29), a subsidiary body of the UNECE Inland Transport Committee.

    Tesla V12 on display

    In the Ride and Drive Sign-Up spreadsheet, Tesla is featured with the following description, confirming that FSd Supervised (V12) will be on display. Each ride lasts 30 minutes and can support up to 3 people per ride. We’re going to assume that there’s someone from Tesla behind the wheel supervising.

    Tesla will be demonstrating its FSD Supervised system in drive-along rides with four vehicles supported by test engineers.

    FSD Supervised is a level 2 point-to-point ADAS available across North-America that provides a natural, safe and comfortable driving experience both on- and off highway.

    Since version 12 of FSD Supervised, Tesla has transitioned to a full End-2-End AI approach incorporating planning, perception and decision-making which has enabled unparalleled performance and capabilities.

    Tesla will bring 4 cars to the event.

    Also part of the Ride-and-Drive program are technology demonstrations from Aptiv, BMW, Ford, Mobileye, GM and Mercedes.

    With the “Automatic Lane Change” function, Mercedes-Benz is offering further intelligence within its SAE Level 2 driver assistance offering. Automatic Lane Change is supported on freeways with clear lane markings present and a structural division or sufficient space to the opposing direction of travel.

    The “Automatic Lane Change” function is available when Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC and Active Steering Assist are active.

    If a slower vehicle is driving ahead, the vehicle can initiate a lane change to the left in the speed range of 40-85 mph and will move back to the original lane when possible to be an exemplary driver.

    With active route guidance, the system also assists in moving to the lane that will best prepare you for an upcoming freeway exit or highway interchange. At any time, the driver can cancel the maneuver by braking, counter steering or by activating the turn signal in the opposite direction.
