Autonomous Racing is Here with ROBORACE
Jan 12, 2022 | By Velodyne Lidar

One way to increase public understanding – and support – for autonomous vehicles is to make it easy for the people to see them in action. ROBORACE takes this concept to the max – with its championship series for autonomous racing cars.

In this video, Chip Pankow, Chief Championship Officer at ROBORACE, explains how his company provides an opportunity for the public to see the superhuman things that autonomous racing cars can do on the track while driving at high speed in close proximity. It also provides a learning opportunity for AV developers to see their technologies deployed in automated driving.

ROBORACE provides the platform, organization and support while racing teams are responsible for their own code and strategy. Season One of the ROBORACE Championship will feature multi-agent racing and Metaverse elements with each competition designed to provide a variety of challenges.

For the upcoming Season One, ROBORACE will unveil next generation, electric-powered autonomous race cars equipped with our solid-state Velarray H800 sensors.
