A report by the French news agency (Via HT Auto) claims that the Minerva race car has set a world record by achieving this speed using self-driving technology. This self-driving race car was run along with other self-driving vehicles during the event, in which it hit a speed of about 185 kmph. The report said that this self-driving car was given a tough competition by a South Korean team named Kaist.
The main reason for organizing the race was to give students teams from all over the world a chance to showcase the capabilities of self-driving vehicles to all. It has proved that humans are very close to completing the initial stage of autonomous driving technology. Where on the one hand this technology is working successfully in private vehicles. On the other hand, it has been included in the race car.
The report further states that Paul Mitchell, co-organizer of the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC), said that ‘it was a success’. There is no doubt that this year CES has proved to be a good platform for automotive technology. This year many companies and startups introduced advanced autonomous assistance systems in their vehicles during the event.<!–
