  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Acura Testing Autonomous Driving Tech with This Gadget-Stuffed RLX Hybrid

Recommended Posts

Second Generation Automated Acura RLX Development Vehicle

-

Like so many other automakers, Acura is eager to show the public how it’s progressing on future autonomous-driving technologies. So it outfitted an Acura RLX hybrid with all sorts of equipment and sensors meant to enable more advanced testing of self-driving features.

-

We can see some of the radar, Lidar, and GPS sensors on the car’s roof, along with new cameras. What we can’t see are the more advanced CPUs and GPUs, along with upgraded circuitry and cabling. All this helps the car run through more intelligent software algorithms to help each sensor and camera perform more accurately. The RLX is undergoing most of its testing at an autonomous-vehicle test track called GoMentum Station in Concord, California, near San Francisco.

Acura’s end goal for developing self-driving tech is a bit vague, as the company says it plans to “introduce automated-driving technologies around 2020.” We should find out more about this plan in ensuing years, but it does roughly correspond to other companies like Nissan and Lexus, whose plans call for production cars with self-driving technology by 2020.
