The October 21, 2015 was the day that the protagonists of the film knew the future. 30 years of that time, our present is something different to what you imagined, but at Stanford we show that the DeLorean can be driven by itself.
Sí, today is October 21, 2015. It is the exact date that Marty McFly and Dr. Emmet Brown traveled 30 years into the future mounted at the famed DeLorean DMC-12. This morning you were showing as Toyota celebrated the occasion with its Mirai fuel-cell hydrogen fuel and now is the Stanford University which takes advantage of the celebration to demonstrate their technologies.
engineers at Stanford have created a DeLorean which was nicknamed MARTY, that has been specifically modified to be driven in an autonomous way, a technology that many are exploring in our days. Clear that in the case of a homage to the movie, it had to be something that causes impact.
that is why they chose the guide autonomous is used to perform a display in the best style Ken Block, but controlled electronically by the DeLorean, without the need to touch the steering wheel. The engineers were commissioned to clarify that the study will serve as a basis for the development of future driving systems automated, but by what can be seen in the video, we believe that what you have done for pure fun, it is well worth to celebrate the October 21, 2015.
