|About: Volkswagen AG ADR (VWAGY)|By:, SA News Editor

Volkswagen (OTCPK:VLKAY -1.2%) plans to unveil its self-driving Sedric concept at the Geneva Motor Show this week.

The company aims for the Sedric to be a SAE-level 5 vehicle, the highest level of autonomy.

The Sedric could eventually be part of a ride-sharing fleet.

Volkwagen on the future: "This new automobile is intelligent, it’s always available and the car even carries out functions independently. Sedric will drive the children to school and then take their parents to the office, look independently for a parking space, collects shopping that has been ordered, picks up a visitor from the station and a son from sports training – all at the touch of a button, with voice control or with a smartphone app – fully automatically, reliably and safely."
