Driverless car

Audi's driverless TT-S has completed its maiden run up the famous Pikes Peak Hill Climb.

The car was developed by Volkswagen's Electronics Research Laboratory in conjunction with Stanford University.

The autonomous Audi covered the 20-kilometre twisting mountain road in 27 minutes, with Audi claiming a human driver could manage the course in 17 minutes.

Having conquered Pikes Peak, the designers and engineers are looking for a suitable racetrack on which they can test the computer's ability to tackle high-speed driving.
