Roborace To Bring Driverless Technology To The Autosport Stage14 Dec 2017
Always at the forefront of future technology, you will have an opportunity to get close to Roborace’s autonomous ‘Robocar,’ which will be on our main stage from Friday.
Roborace is a platform for the development of autonomous technology in an extreme environment, educating you about the benefits and safety of these technologies when they make it onto our roads at scale.
Designed by the automotive futurist who designed the vehicles in Hollywood movies such as “Tron” and “Oblivion,” Roborace’s autonomous ‘Robocar’ is designed to show clearly that there is no human driver in the vehicle.
Weighing just over 1000kg, it boasts four 300kW motors – one at each wheel to allow torque vectoring – making the car capable of speeds of up to 200mph.
Roborace will complement existing racing that uses human drivers – such as FIA Formula E. Traditional motor racing will continue to be the pinnacle of human driving capability, and Roborace will be the pinnacle of A.I. driving capability.
Roborace gives organisations developing driverless technologies an extreme yet safe environment to test their software and hardware pushing them to the limits of their capabilities. Robocar’s Nvida Drive PX2 GPU “brain” is capable of up to 24 trillion A.I. operations per second.
