The Roadrunner autonomous car created by English auto technology company Delphi, has successfully completed a 3,400 mile trip in the United States from California to New York City in nine days. The trip was the longest ever made by a self-driving car, the Roadrunner doing roughly 99% of the driving itself, with a human taking over the wheel when the time came to leave the highway.
Delphi’s active safety technologies enable the 2014 Audi SQ5 to instantaneously make complex decisions, like stopping and then proceeding at a four-way stop, timing a highway merge or calculating the safest maneuver around a bicyclist on a city street.
The self-driving car features six long-range radars, four short-range radars, three vision-based cameras, six lidars, a localization system, intelligent software algorithms and a full suite of Advanced Drive Assistance Systems. Watch the video below.
