For those unfamiliar with the technology, Roborace is the world's first driverless electric racing car. Product of Chief Design Officer Daniel Simon, the Roborace series is scheduled to support the all electric FIA Formula E Championship during the 2017-18 racing season. To put it mildly, a racing car.. no a racing series, full of vehicles with absolutely no human driver intervention is a thing of comic books from our youth. Now, with the magic of technology and some very very clever people, that fantasy has become a reality. Roborace is a brand new racing series that plans to debut during the 2017/18 Formula E Championship. The series will feature a grid of specially designed driverless electric racing cars, competing on a world championship series in support of Formula E, the worlds first all Electric track racing championship. The car itself has been in development for some time and actually made its public debut on track at a recent Donington Park Formula E pre season test session, proving for the first time in a public environment that the technology exists to fully realise the series potential as soon as 2017. Roborace - The Car of the Future is Here Video With an intense design, test and development programme scheduled between now and the first race in 2017, the team behind the series are planning a new YouTube documentary following the progress of vehicle design and insight into what goes on behind the scenes back at the garage. The fly on the wall series will debut on Friday 14th October and feature "un-edited short documentary style films" on a two week release schedule. Promising to give an "all-access look at the Roborace team working towards their first ever season of racing in 2017", it should provide some very interesting insight into the incredibly interesting technology that goes into creating this innovative new series. Check out the 'Inside Roborace' trailer below: Personally I'm a little sceptical about the quality of the "racing" that Roborace might produce. However having seen the car on track with my own eyes, one certainly cannot argue with the impressive technology packed into these truly unique pilotless machines. Quite how that spectacle will transfer to the racetrack remains to be seen. Roll on 2017! What do you think of the idea of artificial intelligence racing cars? Will the racing be any good?
