Most of the motoring media has picked up on this story this week - but my favourite take on it is from Caradvice.com.au - although this picture has a lot to do with that:
Forumla e is getting a support race.
And, being formula e, it's no ordinary support race - the cars will still be electric (of course) but they will also be missing drivers. It is a race for autonomous cars.
The cars will be (hardware speaking) identical - which I think is a bit of a missed opportunity - but they can worry about that in the future. The only difference will be the AI software - I'm wondering if that will mean that each race will pan out in the same way but I'm intrigued enough to want to know more.
Not worrying about driver-safety (or driver existence) will impact on the car design but hopefully crowd safety will still play a part. Remote cut-out switches perhaps?
Post-race interviews will be held with software geeks but, speaking as a software geek, I don't mind that.
In fact, I look forward to getting a phone call from Nicole Scherzinger.
