Cool Videos: Robot Track Trainer BMW 3-series In Action

Videos: Robot Track Trainer BMW 3-series In Action
12
COMMENTS

Here are some videos featuring the autonomous driving BMW 3-series cars, which can drive themselves (and demonstrate proper driving lines, braking, and accelerating) around tracks for which they've been programmed for, including the Nurburgring, Hockenheim, and now Laguna Seca.

The robotic 3-series also feature LED indicator lights which help drivers who takes control manually recognize how close or off of ideal driving lines they are at any given moment on the track. All this info can then be exported to the computer following the laps for immediate graphical analysis and demo on the computer to help the driver improve their next lap. We'd love to see this useful track trainer technology implemented at some point at BMW's performance driving schools and M schools.

Full info on this automatic BMW track trainer can be Read Here

That Top Gear episode was fun.......although Jeremy played it for all it was worth.

Must be nerve wracking just sitting there and not controlling the car

Now all we need are BMWs that can automagically bypass so-cal traffic!

The car at 1:48 in the first video was manual.
I wonder if that is designated specifically for "step 2" and doesn't do any shifting.

Actually is more frightening if you're the instructor and the student takes over. There's one dude in that video who just drives off the track on a straightaway and goes, "haha oops."
