The autonomous car "MadeInGermany" from Freie Universität Berlin has smoothly completed several drives on U.S. and Mexican test tracks and on the road. Computer science professor Raúl Rojas and his team who developed the car, gave demonstrations of it in North and Latin America, for example, at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio and on the local road, at the Instituto Politecnico Nacional (IPN), at a meeting at the Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo, and the German Embassy in Mexico City. There will be other presentations at the National University of Mexico (UNAM) and on the road with regular traffic. On Sunday, October 7, 2012, "MadeinGermany" will drive through downtown Mexico City. The mayor of Mexico City, Marcelo Ebrard, will test the car himself.
Foreign correspondents who happen to be in the region
will have an opportunity on Sunday, October 7, 2012,
to take part in a demonstration of the car in Mexico City.
During his stay in Mexico, Professor Raúl Rojas will be welcomed as a new member of the Mexican Academy of Sciences.
