Fully Autonomous Audi TTS

Pretty cool! ***Video in link***

Per GizModo:
Forget the Darpa's urban challenge. This fully automated Audi TTS—equipped with GPS, sensors, and guidance systems—is set to race on the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, a crazy 19.99-kilometer rally race circuit with 156 turns.

The team that created it wants to see if they can really push performance in such a challenging environment. The modded Audi TTS—which is already the fastest autonomous car in the world, running at 130mph—will have to face gravel and paved dirty roads, with 7% grades that will take it from 4,721 ft to 9,390 ft high.

I'm glad I won't be inside, testing. Although after a near-crash experience in a car this Sunday, I think this will actually be kind of fun. Not as fun as getting trapped into the space shuttle cargo bay without no safety straps, but fun nonetheless.

I'm glad that VAG is recognizing that its typical customer base is lacking certain hardware enough to merit a product that does the driving for them.
