Video: Scientists Have Taught DeLorean To Drift Cool. Without Driver Participation
A group of researchers at Stanford University finalized the electrical prototype MARTY (Multiple Actuator Research Test bed for Yaw control). It was created back in 2015 on the basis of the 1980s DeLorean DMC-12 coupe and is named after Marty McFly, one of the protagonists of the Back to the Future trilogy.
- For four years, scientists have taught the autopilot system to drive in a controlled drift. Now DeLorean drifts like a pro: on the test site, he performed all tests without the help of a driver, having driven more than one kilometer in a continuous drift.
- The DeLorean autopilot system has been refined not only for fun, but also for teaching extreme driving skills. They must help the drone to independently cope with emergency situations on any road surfaces. The developers hope that their car is able to prevent any accident that can be avoided within the framework of the laws of physics.
- The MARTY prototype is equipped with two 272 hp electric motors located on the rear axle. All mechanical controls of the old coupe have been replaced with electronic ones, and many sensors and sensors of the autopilot system have been introduced into the car.
