This is the new SEAT DIANA, a pilot project to test self-driving vehicles in a real-world scenario.
You can basically book the car with an app, pick a specific location and destination and Diana will pick you up and drive you there.
Why is it called Diana? Because, SEAT says, the project is named after “the goddess of the hunt, patroness of nature and the Moon.”
It uses a combination of Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) with radars and lidars, a lidar is basically a much more sophisticated type of radar that can identify obstacle and tell you whether you’ve got a person, an animal or a lamppost on the side of the road. Along with 5 lidar sensors, 5 radars, 6 cameras, 12 ultrasounds and 8 computers that give it 360º vision.
