Autonomous racecar completes legendary 1.16-mile Goodwood hillclimb without a human driver
The Robocar, from a company called Roborace, is a thing of a beauty. Swooping lines, wing-like arches over the wheels -- an all-around gorgeous, sleek design. And it just added a major accomplishment to its abilities.
The car has successfully completed a fully autonomous run at the Festival of Speed Hillclimb in front of 55,000 people at the Goodwood estate in England. That completion required navigating the 1.16-mile course using artificial intelligence -- the first time that's been done without a human driver in the event's 25-year history.
