Self-Driving Cars, Beat This!

Best stunt driving show I've ever seen. Amazing coordination between multiple cars & drivers. How dey do dat? Long but worth watching. Jump to one minute, then 18, then 23 if you must.

A good challenge for Elon, Google cars and Boston Dynamics to beat that!

"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."

    Lots and lots of practice and quite a bit of bent sheet metal.
    In science there is no authority. There is only experiment.
    Life is unpredictable. Eat dessert first.
  • My vex bot does similar stuff, can’t get an autonomous code going, though, to I haven’t tried your figure eight. There are maybe two days in a week that I don’t wish our school had activity bots or BOEBots, vex is just worth the motors and frame. 😝
    That's not an explosion! That's an unscheduled rapid disassembly!

    And a script. A set of robots following a coordinated script wouldn't need half the sensors that self-driving cars need to cope on the roads with the ~90% of human drivers that couldn't pull this off. Robots might even be able to do it open loop with a suitably well-crafted script.
  • How about self driving cars AND semi-autonomous robots???

    Why do I keep thinking of the bad parts of "I, Robot" when I watch this though? LOL
