Autonomous Formula 1 can drive at 280 km/h!

This autonomous car combines speed and driving control thanks to the help of sensors and radars capable of exceptional prowess

The autonomous car is gradually becoming part of our daily lives, even if it is still debated, particularly in terms of security. However, the technological advances concerning unmanned cars commands respect and gives hope of reducing the number of accidents in the near future. When it comes to the responsiveness and reliability of self-driving cars, this Formula 1 will surprise you.

An autonomous Formula 1 as fast as the others

At the new technology show in Las Vegas, the famous CES, the Formula 1 autonomous caused a rage. If the driverless car has been on everyone’s lips for a few years, we had not yet imagined driverless Formula 1 races. This is now the case and, beware, it takes your breath away!

Launched at 280 km/h, these machines are equipped with state-of-the-art technology capable of assimilating 50 pieces of information per second. Although it is currently the talent of the pilots that fascinates fans around the world, it could be different in the future. Imagine a race between unmanned cars ? It would be a real constructors’ championship! And there would be no casualties…

Certainly, adrenaline would be less present for everyone, but this progress proves to us thatartificial intelligence moving forward at high speed. These Formula 1 cars without a driver in the cockpit are also the fastest autonomous cars in the world.

A car full of sensors and radars

According to a TF1 reportthere are three lidiars on Formula 1, as engineer Andrew Saba explains to us: These are lasers that allow to analyze the environment around them. There are also six cameras and there are radars on the sides. All these sensors allow the machine to make the right decisions, when to overtake and when to perform this or that maneuver« .

After receiving all the information, the sensors analyze it, 50 times per second. However, accidents can happen, such as a spin that you can see in the report. Some races already pit manufacturers of driverless Formula 1 cars against each other, but the enthusiasm is in no way comparable to the Grands Prix that everyone knows.

« The most important thing is to advance science. We are trying to push technology to its limits to find out if these systems can operate at 280 km/h. It matters, because one day self-driving cars will hit our highways and lives will be at stake.“. Paul Mitchell, president of the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC), is aware that what is currently being played out is more than a driverless Formula 1 championship.
