Ssangyong Motor has obtained additional permission from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport to temporarily operate self-driving cars Level 3 and start test driving on general roads in December.

The Ssangyong car that was approved for temporary operation is a Korando-based self-driving car, the company said on Nov. 30. This is the second car after the Tivoli Air-based self-driving car (hereinafter referred to as the Korando-based one.

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport introduced a temporary driving permit system for self-driving cars for testing and research purposes in February 2016. Level 3 refers to the level at which cars can be driven autonomously in certain areas, such as highways.

“Korando self-driving cars can analyze traffic conditions around the vehicle and change lanes safely in order to enter the junction and the interchange,” a company spokesman said.

Ssangyong Motor started research and development on self-driving cars in 2014 and held a demonstration event for self-driving cars in 2015, he said.
