VIDEO: Politecnico di Milano’s self-driving car record


An amazing venue for an amazing feat: a car created by the Politecnico di Milano-PoliMOVE broke the world speed record for a fully autonomous car on the Space Shuttle airstrip at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral. The car, based on a Dallara AV-21, reached an incredible 192.2mph/309.3kph, beating the previous record held by Roborace of 175.49mph/282.42kph). The speed was obtained as an average of over 1km in two consecutive attempts in opposite directions (to eliminate the effects of wind).
