F1 Bolid Robot Driver

In Berlin there is a showdown of autonomous race cars: you compete at the Roborace. Controlled by artificial intelligence, they should rush with 300 km/h over the ground of the abandoned Tempelhof.Recently, the police disguised the way that whatever driverless rolled over California’s roads a knobbly Google car. Good it stopped. The reason for the action: It went so slowly that it stopped the traffic. You can say after slowness the formula E cars that go in the next year at the start. Because they are designed for speed, as driverless as the Google car.

After there were already two races with electric cars, directed by riders, the Organizer, the Fédération announced Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), a series of events with driverless electric cars. The race will take one hour and listen to the name Roborace. The vehicles are provide in similar services with speeds up to 300 km/h formula E cars.

The best artificial intelligence programmed which company?

Altogether nine races are planned in North and South America, as well as on the grounds of the disused Berlin Tempelhof. Exact dates are not yet known. All ten teams are equipped with identical vehicles at Roborace. Each participate with two cars. However, the software that directs the vehicles, speeds up and slows down, to come by different developers. The financier of the race, that kinetics, wants Russian investment company with the races, accelerate the development of systems of artificial intelligence and the Internet of things.

“Roborace is an Open Championship for the most innovative companies in the world,” says formula E-promoter Alejandro Agag. And kinetics founder of Sverdlov, the former Russian Minister of communications and mass media, added: “We firmly believe that in the future all vehicles worldwide by artificial intelligence are supported and are electrically operated, to improve the road safety as well as environmental.”

On the trail of Berta Benz

Driverless cars will be tested not only by Google. Experiment therefore almost all car manufacturers in the world. The Volkswagen subsidiary Audi, for example, have already driverless on the Hockenheimring race a sports car. And Daimler had driverless track driving after a car clocked Berta Benz, the wife of the car developer Carl Benz, in 1888. She was from Mannheim to Pforzheim.
