To the future on Susita

Cars without drivers is a fantastic future, about which the inventors of the first car dreamed a hundred years ago. In 2019, Israel will become the launching pad for the production and running- in of the practice of unmanned taxis of the first generation.
“In the 1950s, we failed,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the presentation of the project, “trying to produce his own car brand. Our little “Susita”, is “horse” translated from Hebrew, was falling apart literally on the go. We could not produce normal chassis, engines or tires. Therefore, Israel has turned to technology, and now that the car has become a “computer on wheels,” Israel can lead the international market. ”
Today in Israel, about 400-500 companies are working in the automotive industry. These include startups in the field of sensor technologies, cybersecurity, mobile applications, 3D visualization and other related areas.
A new type of car meets all the needs of the urban transport structure of the XXI century, providing accessibility, speed, mobility. In addition, new cars will reduce the level of air pollution and noise, the number of traffic jams and accidents on the roads.

The project oversees the Israeli government, providing legal and regulatory support, creating infrastructure and traffic control systems.
The project will begin in early 2019 and will be carried out in stages from the introduction of several dozen to hundreds of self-propelled electric vehicles on the streets of the city. The developers claim that they will be able to create a network of fully automated transport by 2021.
