The test, however, is a step toward it, as Audi calls ‘piloted driving’, so when you get the car to run for them. For example, in a traffic jam, in which case it will not be necessary to keep up with the traffic you get is through the stopper. So you can sit with its smartphone instead, for example.
Audi RS7 uses a variety of sensors to navigate around the track as cameras, laser scanners and GPS, and Audi has developed on the idea for 15 years.
