Driverless car tackles race track

A DRIVERLESS Audi RS 7 Sportback will tackle Germany’s Hockenheim circuit at race speed this week to underscore the potential of piloted driving technology.

With the latest Audi developments on board, the RS 7 will drive autonomously to its physical limits with millimetre precision as a sideshow for the German Touring Car Championship (DTM) finale on Sunday.

As its sensors guide it around the circuit, the RS 7 Sportback piloted driving concept car will be approximately as fast as with a professional racing driver at the wheel.

Tests conducted so far indicate that on the grand prix track a lap time of just over two minutes can be expected, and that the technology demonstrator should reach speeds of up to 149mph.

The performance will be broadcast live and exclusively on the internet on Sunday starting at 12.45pm on Audi MediaTV.
