VW Golf GTI does 150mph without a driver

Posted on Wednesday, July 05 2006 @ 10:20:20 CEST by

Volkswagen has developed a new robotic Golf GTI that blazes through a racetrack at up to 150 miles per hour. It uses a combination of radar and laser sensors, along with GPS. The company claims the car is accurate to within an inch.
VW engineers claim the car can drive faster and better than them at the test track in northern Germany.

Volkswagen has supported robotic car ventures and perhaps the most notable was the winning DARPA Grand Challenge team from Stanford University. Stanley, the team's Volkwagen Toureg, won the 132-mile race with an array of LIDAR, RADAR and GPS units. While the VW Golf has less sensors and is much faster than Stanley, you have to realize that it's racing on a closed track rather than dodging cactus in the desert.
