Audi R8 e-tron piloted driving technical concept car

At the CES Asia show, Audi unveiled the 2015 R8 e-tron, which as you know has 450 km (280 miles) of range (NEDC) on 92 kWh battery and sprints from 0-62.1 mph in 3.9 seconds.

But this new R8 e-tron is different, because it can enjoy the performance itself, without the driver!

Autonomous sports car?

"The R8 e-tron piloted driving technical study is equipped with all of the functions of piloted driving. Data is acquired from the interplay of an array of sensors: a new type of laser scanner, several video cameras, ultrasonic sensors and radar sensors at the front and rear. Based on signals from these sources, the central driver assistance control unit (zFAS), a compact central computer, computes a comprehensive picture of the vehicle’s environment."
