Audi TTS named Shelley is learning how to drive from professional racers

Race car drivers are learning from connected car data and now self-driving cars are learning from race car drivers. Standford University researchers are using data from race drivers to enable a  supped-up autonomous Audi TTS named Shelley to drive faster than a human race car driver at Thunderhill race track in Willows(near Chico), California.

Gerdes uses cameras to record how race drivers handle turns and straightaways and how they use the steering wheel, the pedals and sift gears. Electrodes are attached to drivers heads to track their vital signs and brain activity.

Shelley is designed to know when to brake and to trade off between braking and steering, on a turn by turn basis.
