Self-driving race car crashes … before the race begins!
Self-driving cars may be the way forward for the future of the automotive industry however at a new autonomous rally series one of the cars crashed into a wall … before the race began.
In what can only be described as a rather disappointing start to the race, the Acronis SIT Autonomous, controlled by a Swiss team, was ready at the start line for the race on Friday, October 30, when the onboard AI kicked in and accelerated forward making a sudden and unexpected right turn ploughing itself straight into the raceway wall.
The mixed virtual reality augmented, and self-driving race saw competitors navigated VR obstacles with self-driving electric cars.
The self-driving cars are fitted with a range of new technology that is supposed to enable them to navigate effectively without a driver including an AI camera, LIDAR system and sensors that decide the direction of travel.
Six teams competed in the race across three laps in a timed trial.
