The Indy Autonomous Challenge in Indianapolis made history as the first racing competition between driverless vehicles, with a team from Germany's Technical University of Munich (TUM) claiming a $1-million prize.
TUM’s car beat the EuroRacing team's Dallara IL-15 over two laps, although the Dallara achieved the fastest lap time ever recorded for an autonomous car, at 139 mph (223 kph).
Each autonomous car used sensors, cameras, radar, and a global positioning system.
The TUM team's Alexander Wischnewski said their car's 135 mph (218 kph) average speed "is not far away from what human drivers do" with the same vehicle.
