The technology placed in BARO ONE enables Level 3 autonomy, which means that it can operate without any driver involvement. It includes both an autopilot and an auxiliary joystick for manual driving.
The dashboard also features a 12″ digital display that provides vehicle information (e.g. battery charge) as well as access to all driving modes. In autonomous mode, the Tablet allows the driver to select either a pre-determined destination or a specific point within the zone configured on the map. It also controls the vehicle functions, such as lighting – it is the visible face of the autonomous driver.
In manual mode, the Tablet is the co-pilot. It alerts the driver to potentially dangerous situations, such as driving towards a prohibited area. It also displays the distance to objects to help the driver anticipate a manoeuvre.
