When you hear the word “Driverless Car” you imagine yourself a car with limited speed or slower than a bicycle which needs adjustment while turning Left to right or need to apply the brakes whenever there is curve road ahead. But can you imagine a Driverless car racing though the winds tearing up a racetrack.
The Audi TTS exceed the 120 MPH (190Km/hr) mark though; mechanical engineering professor Chris Gerdes and his students are more interested in other aspects of the car’s track performance.
“A race car driver can use all of a car’s functionality to drive fast,” said Gerdes. “We want to access that same functionality to make driving safer.”
