Audi’s RS7 Piloted Driving concept car gives a tantalising glimpse into the future of motoring according to Audi. The idea of being driven by your car takes a lot of getting used to but even in our short time with the vehicle, we learned to trust the tech. It’s refreshing to learn that Audi doesn’t see the driver being replaced entirely but wants the autonomous tech to set in for those more menial trips behind the wheel.
Audis will be able to drive themselves on the motorway and even valet park themselves before the end of the decade. That’s the promise of Thomas Muller – head of development of braking, steering and driver assistance systems at the German firm. But don’t worry; Audi doesn’t want to create robot taxis that take over from humans entirely.
