Data collection vehicles

Zenseact on the road.

There are robotaxis driving around San Francisco all by their lonesome. And that’s awesome. But imagine what it would take to have a car drive itself across the US, Europe, or Asia. If we’re serious about teaching cars to handle anywhere, they have to memorize everywhere.

When enough cars are equipped with the right technology, this mapping of the world will eventually take care of itself. Meanwhile, we have to do it ourselves, using test cars. Our vehicles are constantly collecting sensor data in Europe, Asia, and North America to develop and verify future autonomous drive functionality and validate sensor performance. 

The collected data is lidar, radar, and camera data of lane markings, road objects such as vehicles, bicycles, and heavy trucks, as well as geographical position, ego vehicle data, and driver monitoring information. See our schedule below.
