Robocar is a fully autonomous racing car, and the halo machine of Roborace—the first global autonomous racing car series. Daniel is Chief Design Officer at Roborace, and responsible for the concept and design of all their competition vehicles.
Roborace was founded in 2016, and operates today offices in London, Heyford, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. The company believes in a future of autonomous cars—and strives to create a competition allowing different AIs (artificial intelligence) to compete in even cars, to emphasis on a ‘competition of intelligence’, filtering out as many vehicle dynamic variables as possible between the teams.
Events are held on existing race tracks, air fields, or closed-off public roads. Roborace currently operates two different vehicles: Robocar and DevBot 2.0. While Robocar is exclusively operated by Roborace itself and reserved for halo showcases such as record runs and public demonstrations, the more durable DevBot 2.0 is used for the official team competition. In the 2020 season beta, the teams are Autonomous Racing Graz, University of Pisa, Carnegie-Mellon University, SIT Autonomous, and Arrival Racing.
