Audi has made the impossible possible with the RS7 Piloted Driving Concept which managed to lap the Hockenheim on itself.
The German based carmaker Audi has taken an important step forward into putting self-driving vehicles on the roads with its RS7 Piloted Driving Concept. The model in question has managed to lap the famous Hockenheim track on itself and the video posted below stands proof.
“This top performance substantiates the skills of our development team with regard to piloted driving at Audi”, said the Audi AG board member for Technical Development, Ulrich Hackenberg.
The Audi RS7 Piloted Driving Concept has lapped Hockenheim without a driver, at “racing speed”. The model managed to do it in just over two minutes. The orientation on the track has been provided by specially corrected GPS signals transmitted to the vehicle through a WiFi connection. This success is a simple episode of a series of developments which began ten years ago. For this project, the company has worked together with Stanford University and Electronics Research Laboratory. The impressive vehicle has been introduced last weekend. Scroll down and click the play button to see the autonomous vehicle in action on the track.
