Within it, the Autonomous Vehicle was highlighted as an initiative that brought together the two areas of the ministry: transportation and telecommunications
This three-month pilot allowed testing in control technology and consolidating public-private collaboration between the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, the Inter-American Development Bank and Transdev. Additionally, it incorporated the support of private partners and academia through the Faculty of Physical Sciences and Mathematics of the University of Chile.
