McLaren: in the future, AI will be the second pilot of racing cars

Race “Formula 1” will be more like a video game in 30 years, according to fanciful vision of the future presented by the supercar manufacturer McLaren. Research project MCLExtreme developing racing cars that will do almost everything. These cars, of course, an electric, will drive on the tracks type Hot Wheels at speeds up to 500 kilometers per hour, developing acceleration to 5 G when cornering 90 degrees at the speed of 400 kilometers per hour.

What are the race cars of the future

Electric racers will be powered via induction coils on the track directly in the wheel, built of “self-healing composite”, of course. On Board will be the battery, could be recharged up to 10-50 percent in just 10 seconds. Instead of a pit stop can be done a couple of laps on the line charging, which can add energy depending on the speed that adds to the game some strategy.

Tracks will include hilly areas and steep angles, designed for high speed. The drivers like fighter pilots will be equipped with inflating bladders in suits that help to resist stress. Currently, the “Formula-1” prohibits active aerodynamics, but the McLaren absolutely sure that by 2050 this will change. Its the concept car has the ability to “change form”, with side pendants that are removed at the maximum speed and expanded, adding resistance when braking and cornering.

To cope with the additional complexity and risk, drivers will be to help artificial intelligence system that can help with the strategy of the race and keep the car system at its peak. She will even be able to understand the emotional state of the driver and will give appropriate advice based on that.

The design concepts look very funny — it seems that the McLaren engineers saw the film “the First player to get ready” too many times. Perhaps the concepts are too many dreams, but ideas like the assistant of artificial intelligence and electric motor definitely will come true.
