They are planning to send the converted 1965 Ford Mustang, completely self driving up the course a proof of concept to show that the technology can handle the tight corners, hay bales, walls and 1.16 miles course. According to its maker, the 3D scan will be "connected to an awareness of the car's own position". Yeah, probably a good idea, that. The vehicle will take part in the competition to lift the hill and you will pass the track in a fully Autonomous mode, using the technology developed in collaboration with the University of Cranfield, reports the Chronicle.info with reference for Today. "The Siemens Autonomous Hillclimb challenge project connects the classic spirit of automotive adventure with advanced technology", said Dr James Brighton, Senior Lecturer at Cranfield. Even cooler, the Royal Air Force is celebrating its centennial this year, and the livery for the vehicle was chosen to resemble the Eagle Squadrons, an RAF unit that featured American volunteer pilots.

Ever wondered what it feels like to sit in a supercar and compete in the Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard Hillclimb?

The auto was driven up the Goodwood hillclimb course by chief engineer Tetsuya Tada, the man also responsible for the smaller 86 coupe.

Cops use coin flip to decide whether to arrest
In the video, Brown opens the app unprompted, as if it was something she's done before. 'It's disgusting. Webb had no idea that the officers used the coin flip method until Alive 11 alerted her of the video.

The Robocar is an example of the sort of racers that are due to compete in the upcoming fully autonomous Roborace series, which works in collaboration with the Formula E all-electric race series.

"One of my fondest memories is when Dan Gurney came very early to the Festival of Speed with the Eagle, that was big one for me", he admitted. I shouldn't say that, because Siemens actually did end up pointing their self-driving Mustang up the hill. Let us know what you think about the autonomous Mustang in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Minor edits have been made.
