  • An announcement by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) earlier in the year stated that moving forward, the company plans to incorporate sensor fusion technology with all of its Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) systems in all vehicles. 

    Sensor fusion technology is currently found in a variety of FCA vehicles, including the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango. It uses a combination of sensors and cameras to detect everything going on around the vehicle and results in an overall safer driving experience by using audio and visual clues to warn the driver of an approaching object or person. If the driver fails to react, the vehicle will bring itself to a halt. 

    FCA recently released a video (above) which demonstrates exactly how the system works in the NHTSA five-star safety-rated 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

  • On Monday, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced that the development of 100 uniquely outfitted Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans has been completed. The vehicles have been delivered to Waymo (formally known as the Google Self-Driving Car Project), where they will be outfitted with Waymo’s fully self-driving technology, including a purpose-built computer and a suite of sensors, telematics and other systems. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrids is set to join Waymo’s self-driving test fleet early next year. 

    “The Pacifica Hybrid will be a great addition to our fully self-driving test fleet. FCA’s product development and manufacturing teams have been agile partners, enabling us to go from program kickoff to full vehicle assembly in just six months,” stated John Krafcik, Chief Executive Officer, Waymo. “They've been great partners, and we look forward to continued teamwork with them as we move into 2017.”

    According to an FCA press release, 94 percent of the 1.2 million deaths that occur each year on roads worldwide are caused by human error and self-driving cars have the potential to prevent many of these accidents. This partnership will help both FCA and Waymo to understand what it takes to bring self-driving vehicles onto public roads and the benefits that will come along with them. 

    The future is looking pretty exciting, if you ask us! Though we don’t have these in our showroom quite yet, we hope you’ll stop by and see us at Landmark Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram of Atlanta to check out our current lineup!
