Self-Driving Racecar

For years, Stanford’s Chris Gerdes has been working with students to build a self-driving race car.

The car recently hit speeds of 120mph at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, California, and the video shows what it looks like to have a car weave around a track with nobody at the wheel.

Of course, a racetrack lacks many of the variables and obstacles that cars encounter in real life. But raw performance is important, particularly since I dream of one day commuting in self-driving cars at 300mph :-)
