Driver-free track day

Wheels (Australia) - - Redlinde -

BMW and Audi have al­ready demon­strated what is pos­si­ble with au­ton­o­mous con­trol on a race track. In 2014 BMW demon­strated a self-drift­ing M235i on a wet­ted sec­tion of Las Vegas Speed­way, with jour­nal­ists strapped into the driver’s seat for some per­fect slides. Later that year, Audi lapped Ger­many’s Hock­en­heim cir­cuit in an RS7. The sys­tem used cor­rected GPS sig­nals to place the car within cen­time­tres of its pro­grammed course.
