The future race car – high speed without a pilot

In this TEDTalk, Chris Gerdes, Stanford Automotive Research Center director, talks about the cars of the future, which will run without drivers. Eventually, along the researches, they discovered that humans drive as well as the computer, so they investigated the reasons for that.

This video is very interesting for those who like car races and futurology. We could forecast a world where day by day transport by car will be totally automated. This could diminish accidentes, stress etc.. On the other hand, racing as a sport would be one of the last opportunities to drive, or see someone driving, a car. In other words, it could leverage racing status as a sport. Or not…

And you? What do you think about that?
