Self-driven slot cars powered by Freescale

Posted by Charbax – June 22, 2010

You know the slot cars, you have two little electric cars on a track and two players have a button to decide how much voltage to send over to the car. Freescale has collaborated with universities in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania to use Freescale sensors and software algorithms to create an automatic self-driven car that is faster than most human drivers. As it learns the track on its first lap, it then speeds away at full speed, knowing exacly how much speed to use in each turn. You can watch this other official video showing the self-driven slot cars at Self-driven slot cars at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tv5_g5dVsaw
