Introducing the DevBot — the world’s first robot electric race car.
The autonomous vehicle is being developed by Roborace and can reach speeds of 215 mph (350 kph).
The prototype racer was due to run tests on a street track for the first time at the Hong Kong ePrix but battery-charging issues meant it stayed in the garage. The eventual plan is to run a series of “Roboraces” with 10 autonomous cars all competing on the same track.
The car has been developed by a small team of engineers and computer scientists. “With this car we have several kinds of sensors,” Sergey Malygin, Roborace’s Artificial Intelligence developer, told CNN. “First of all there are lasers measurements — light-based, so we have information about the 3D objects around us.”
“Also we have…
