  • Borg-Warner Trophy debuts at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Though a run during the Timed Shootout is unlikely, Siemens has confirmed it'll be sending the autonomous Ford Mustang up the hill over all four days of the Festival of Speed.

"It is an enormous achievement for a race auto to complete the very first run of the hill using only artificial intelligence", said Charles Gordon-Lennox, the Duke of Richmond and Founder of the Festival of Speed.

Robocar, the world's first autonomous race vehicle, was designed by Daniel Simon, the automotive futurist known for his work in Hollywood films such as Oblivion and Tron. But before it does that, the company made a decision to run its latest creation up the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. A full suite of sensors and control algorithms allows the Mustang to do this, responding to tiny changes in the road's surface. They had a hard time adapting the autonomous hardware to the car's traditional steering and suspension bits.

Siemens has developed said autonomous tech in conjunction with Cranfield University, and the 'Stang will apparently utilize "advanced location scanning technology" that comes via Bentley Systems. The team used advanced scanning technology to gain a detailed 3D model of the track, allowing the vehicle to "know" exactly where it is. Essentially, it will have an idea of where it's going before it rolls a single degree up that hill.

The Festival is renowned for attracting the best cars and most famous drivers in motoring.

The Supra is expected to be fully revealed at the beginning of September, and will go on sale in South Africa during the first half of 2019.

The app, available on Android and iOS, will be free to download and will be a must-have for the thousands of fans attending any of Goodwood's three major motorsport events or watching the action from home. See it for yourself on Thursday, July 12.
