That’s a bit…weird.
The advancements that we have made in the automotive world is absolutely stunning. Over the past 100 years, automobiles and their technology have grown exponentially and have even influenced other industries around the globe. It’s quite impressive, and Audi’s latest display of engineering is just utterly incredible.
Audi has been working on its driverless systems for quite some time, and they finally debuted their technology to an amazed crowd at the Hockenheimring for the DTM finale with an Audi RS 7. The car was able to complete one full lap without a driver, which seems a bit weird and almost uncomfortable. However, the RS 7, “driven by technology, by intelligence!” as proclaimed by the stunned announcer, performed very well with nobody behind the wheel by completing a lap faster than most of us ever could.
How is Audi able to pull this off? Other than some sort of engineering wizardry, there’s probably a guy in a janitor’s closet with an Xbox controller playing Forza Motorsport and piloting the car.
