Roborace at Goodwood FOS

Roborace’s autonomous race car, Robocar, will take on Goodwood's 1.16-mile track guided only by automated systems, making it the first self-driving car ever to attempt the hillclimb. Robocar will be tasked with navigating hay bales, flint walls and forests on the Duke of Richmond's estate, using a variety of sensors that give it 360-degree machine vision around the car. In addition to the historic run, visitors to the Festival of Speed will also be able to enjoy the hillclimb from the Robocar’s point-of-view in a custom, fully immersive VR experience in the Roborace booth, located inside the Future Lab. Robocar, the world’s first autonomous race car, was designed by Daniel Simon, the automotive futurist known for his work in Hollywood films such as Oblivion and Tron: Legacy. The purpose-built electric race car weighs 1,350 kg and is powered by four 135kW electric motors used to power each wheel, for a combined 500-plus hp. An NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 computer processes Robocar’s data, which includes inputs from the lidar, radar, GPS, ultrasonic, and camera sensors. ____ Roborace is the world’s first competition for human + machine teams, using both self-driving and manually-controlled cars. Race formats will feature new forms of immersive entertainment to engage the next generation of racing fans. Through sport, innovations in machine-driven technologies will be accelerated. Roborace will redefine the way you think about autonomous technology.
