Roboracer Car About To Make History



The Goodwood's famous Festival of Speed will welcome an autonomous electric car to tackle its hillclimb challenge for the first time next month.

The self-driving Roboracer EV will autonomously drive up the winding lanes of the Goodwood estate in West Sussex during this year's 25th anniversary Festival

The futuristic car, which has already made a buzz on the Formula E circuit, will pit its 360-degree sensors, computer processors, four electric motors, GPS, radar, lidar and hi-tech cameras against the hay bales, flint walls, trees and tight turns of Goodwood's 1.16-mile hill track in a race against the clock.

"We are excited that the Duke of Richmond has invited us to make history at Goodwood as we attempt the first ever fully -- and truly -- autonomous uphill climb using only artificial intelligence," said Roborace boss and Formula E champ Lucas di Grassi.

The 1,350 kg car, which was showcased at the Festival's Future Lab last year, was designed by Hollywood creative Daniel Simon, known for his work on films such as "Oblivion," "Tron" and "Captain America."
