Any fans of Formula Racing and artificial intelligence might want to pay attention to the world’s first autonomous racing car. Developed by VC fund KINETIC, this powerhouse of a race car is a response to Formula E announcing its selection for Roborace, a planned driverless series that will see ten teams compete to produce the best artificially intelligent controlled car.

Very few details were released regarding how the car will function, or even its size. It was released however, that the cars would boast top speeds of more than 186 mph. The initial design of the car was produced by Daniel Simon. He claims the low profile, made possible through using the floor as the main aerodynamic device, aided in designing an robotic vehicle that can reach such racing thresholds. Regardless of where Formula E takes this car, it marks an important step towards a future of self-driving vehicles, hopefully making the road a safer place for everyone.
