Yandex unmanned vehicles appeared on the roads of Moscow

Unmanned vehicles overlook Moscow’s public roads. According to the TASS news agency, Yandex is starting to test these cars. Five machines are involved in the experiment, they are technically ready to carry out movement without the help of a driver, that is, the system takes full control of itself. Such cars belong to the fourth level of autonomy. The press service of Yandex predicts in the near future that several dozens of such vehicles, which are now in a state of waiting for permission, will enter the experiment. The choice of a specific route and testing tasks are fully consistent with the provisions of the Government’s decree on conducting an experiment throughout Moscow. Representatives of the company plan to bring more than 100 unmanned vehicles to the roads of Moscow and other territories by the end of the year. In collaboration with the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Yandex is working to simplify the certification process of drones. The first roads on which experimental cars will appear will be the so-called departure highways, the center of Moscow, as well as the Yasenevo, Butovo, Kommunarka, MKAD and TTK districts. The experiment (and testing at the same time) should reveal the economic feasibility of introducing this technology into the country’s economic activity. Until the spring of 2022, other regions of the country will be involved in the experiment, as well as the Moscow-Helsinki international highway.
