The converted car has one according to Message the university on electronically controlled braking, acceleration and steering systems. There are GPS antennas on the roof of the vehicle, which can be used to locate the car position down to an accuracy of 2.5 cm. Thanks to an on-board computer, MARTY only needs a few seconds to calculate the optimal route.
The images show how the car completes the circuit with the perfection of a drift professional in cross drift. There are two engineers in the vehicle, Jon Goh and Tushar Goel, but they do Not to steer.
Basis for future safe evasive maneuvers of self-driving cars
The team sees the spectacular attempt as the basis for making autonomous driving safer. Slippery roads and rapid evasive maneuvers, such as when pedestrians suddenly get into the road, should be better mastered based on the experience from the MARTY project.
