The Autonomous Racing League aired its Season Beta 1.1 race on Thursday to demonstrate the potential of high-speed auto racing that doesn’t endanger human drivers. Unfortunately, according to Engadget, a car from the SIT Acronis Autonomous team had other ideas.
One of the engineers behind the self-driving runabout drove to Reddit to explain what had happened. It turns out that there is an initialization lap prior to the race where a human driver leads the car to the starting line. For some reason the steering mechanism was locked all the way to the right during this process. When the race started, the car decided to take a detour straight into a barrier at the edge of the track.
The engineer called it an “extremely rare occurrence”. So don’t expect to see this every time Roborace or any other self-driving racing league hits the grid. Even so, there is nothing more than one formidable looking machine in 2020 that is ruining itself by turning hard to the right despite its better judgment.
