Self-driving 1965 Ford Mustang to take on Goodwood hillclimb

New Toyota Supra makes dynamic debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Roborace is the world's first competition for human + machine teams, using both self-driving and manually-controlled cars.

A special edition Ford Mustang GT paying tribute to USA fighter pilots who served in the RAF during World War II will debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018, presented by Mastercard.

THE TECHNOLOGY firm Siemens will conduct the first ever autonomous hill climb run at Goodwood, in perhaps the most unlikely of cars: a classic Ford Mustang. The powertrain 289ci. (4.7-litre), Suspension and steering still remains stock. During this second run, the announcers mention that with each run, the system learns the track and that allows the vehicle to make the next run more smoothly, but this still serves as a bit of an embarrassing situation for the autonomous driving community. But before it does that, the company chose to run its latest creation up the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Robocar, the world's first fully-autonomous race auto, was designed by Daniel Simon, the automotive futurist known for his work in recent Hollywood films such as Oblivion and Tron: Legacy. Siemens is preparing for an increasingly autonomous future and this is part of that. Even cooler, the Royal Air Force is celebrating its centennial this year, and the livery for the auto was chosen to resemble the Eagle Squadrons, an RAF unit that featured American volunteer pilots. The company says that development of the Robocar's automated driving system at Goodwood was led by automotive technology company Arrival. This is our answer to what that future may look like'.

Utilising autonomous technology, developed in collaboration with Cranfield University, the autonomous hillclimb will be attempted on Thursday 12th July, before being repeated every day until the end of the festival.
