Chiara Appendino, Mayor of Turin, said that this initiative is a great opportunity to create a good FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) Group chain that has been involved in this project for quite a substantial time.

The experimentation should undergo a very high increase by 2020 to ensure that autonomous driving becomes more and more concrete reality, as per Blasting news.

It is estimated that around 30 million autonomous cars could circulate around the world, with a total value of USD 7 trillion. Chiara Appendino was very pleased to seize this kind of opportunity, given that Turin is a city where car production represents the history of the city. The companies will then go further in the production of vehicles totally independent from the driver.

In addition to Turin, other Italian cities could soon become a place of experimentation for vehicles with autonomous driving. So there are all good intentions for robot cars to become a real reality.

According to Blasting news, even roads and highways must be put in a position to support the presence of this type of car. Needed is the presence of Wi-Fi hotspots to connect cars that must detect traffic and weather conditions. Italy will soon see how the evolution of cars with autonomous driving will proceed.
