Robocar revealed for inaugural Roborace Series

Roborace – the driver-less racing series – has officially unveiled the car which will be competing in the inaugural championship.

The Robocar, which will be used by all teams in a one-make series supporting the Formula E championship, was revealed by the Roborace team at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The revealed car follows the concept designed several months ago by Daniel Simon, Roborace’s Chief Design Officer.

Despite hopes of the series commencing for the start of the third Formula E season, the car has been in development over the last few months through the use of ‘Devbot’.

According to the specifications, the car weighs 975kg, is capable of speeds of 320kph (198mph) and completes 24 trillion A.I. operations per second.

“This is a huge moment for Roborace as we share the Robocar with the world and take another big step in advancing driverless electric technology,” declared Roborace CEO Denis Sverdlov.

“I am so proud of the entire team and our partners and particularly the work Daniel has done creating this beautiful machine

“It was very important for us that we created an emotional connection to driverless cars and bring humans and robots closer together to define our future.

“The progress with Devbot on track and building the Robocar in less than a year has been extraordinary and we cannot wait to continue the journey of learning with the Robocar.”
