The “Roborace” {series} is scheduled to begin in 2017 and can see 10 autonomous automobiles all competing on the identical track.

The car efficiently navigated the track at Formula E’s Marrakech ePrix in November. The all-electric race {series} will host robotic races throughout ePrix weekends.

The car has been developed by a small staff of engineers and laptop scientists. “With this car we have several kinds of sensors,” Sergey Malygin, Roborace’s Artificial Intelligence developer, instructed CNN. “First of all there are lasers measurements — light-based, so we have information about the 3D objects around us.”

“Also we have cameras, radars, ultrasonics to get the information about other vehicles and base stations,” Malygin continues. “We also have precise positioning systems and optical speed sensors.”

“To get this information inside (the car), process it and get a valuable understanding of what is happening around us that’s something that needs a lot of computing power,” Malygin explains. The uncooked information is then deciphered by algorithms which tells the car the place the partitions are and the place different automobiles are on the street.

Roborace engineer, Matas Simonavicius, says every wheel is individually powered, offering extra stability and security.
“One motor drives one wheel,” Simonavicius instructed CNN. “This way you can do torque vectoring — you can control the power to wheels much better, how it drives and the performance it gives out. It’s more advanced than the conventional stability control ABS.”

But are driverless automobiles a good suggestion?
“I think, yes,” Simonavicius says. “What’s the biggest cause of accidents at the moment? It’s human error.”

“That’s why we want to bring this car into a controlled environment where you cannot hurt any people and you can prove that it works,” Simonavicius argues.

“We’re trying to change people’s perspective of it. So they will see it at races and see it’s safe and does all these cool things.”
