Robby, the new Audi RS7 autonomous, is already faster than a professional driver circuit


In Audi they have gone completely mad. Or maybe not. Long working on its technology to create an autonomous car, and they are doing it in two distinct stages, the street, and circuits . While it is certainly more appropriate stage – and I dare say, the only – for an autonomous car is the street, the circuit is getting even generate more excitement. An autonomous car circuit does not make much sense, but the advertising showcase that involves creating driverless cars that are both, or faster than a professional pilot is sufficiently attractive to pass up. And so was born Robby , the new generation of Audi RS7 [1.99901 million] piloted driving concept , which is already able to roll faster than the professional drivers who have been their commanders. Or at least that’s what Audi says.


Would you like to be scared in circuit? The Audi RS7 [1.99901 million] autonomous promises chills

If a few months ago said that the Audi RS7 [1.99901 million] self was not so gradually Audi has continued to work on its technology to make my arguments are losing weight. The new Audi RS7 [1.99901 million] piloted driving concept, dubbed Robby has been able to roll in two minutes 1.01 seconds in the layout of 4.05 kilometers Raceway Sonoma circuit in California .

According to Thomas Müller, responsible for developing braking systems, steering and driving assists to Audi, “in Sonoma, we at Audi RS7 [1.99901 million] concept piloted driving their physical limits every lap, and it did the job with great precision. ” They say their times were not overcome by human pilots.

The new Audi RS7 [1.99901 million] self is 400 lighter than its predecessor, but do not know how Audi has performed this miracle diet kilograms.

Robby is the replacement for Bobby , the former Audi RS7 [1.99901 million] piloted driving concept already made mischief in Ascari and Hockenheim.

Recall that this autonomous car is based on an Audi RS7 2015 [1.99901 million] standard with engine V8 Twin Turbo 560 hp and a good enough performance to that would achieve reach 240 km / h on the straight Hockenheimring. Beyond the adaptation of sensors, cameras peripheral vision and piloting systems for steering, throttle and brake Robby, the new Audi RS7 [1.99901 million] piloted driving concept, would have lost weight 400 kg .

not know what techniques used Audi to save as much weight, even for such an important savings will presumably have resorted to an almost complete emptying of the compartment and pieces in very light materials such as carbon fiber.
