In an effort to successfully test Level 4 autonomous driving on a highway, Renault has inadvertently solved a significant challenge for autonomous vehicles, learns Freddie Holmes

In the run-up to the 2017 Frankfurt IAA in September, Renault teased the Symbioz, a concept car with autonomous functionality and pure electric propulsion.
