The IAC will have a significant presence at the event, partnering with the Indiana Economic Development Corporation to host a major exhibition space in the Las Vegas Convention Center. During the event, IAC will unveil its Next Gen Autonomous Racecar, which boasts a new cutting-edge autonomous hardware system that will catapult the performance of the IAC’s vehicles.
“Our university teams have been piloting the world’s fastest autonomous racecars in head-to-head racing for two years now and have completed more than 7,000 miles of autonomous racing. We have learned a great deal about the unique hardware and software capabilities required for extreme high-speed automation,” IAC president Paul Mitchell said in a release. “We’ve taken those learnings along with the hardware advancements made by our industry partners and developed the most advanced autonomous racecar in the world.
