Meet Marty, The Autonomous Self-Drifting DeLorean

The engineers at Stanford have an obsession with Back to the Future, artificial intelligence, and extreme drifting. They pooled their collective gearheads and constructed Marty, the self-drifting DeLorean. This was done as part of a study to determine houw autonomous vehicles could react to extreme situations like drifting. The results of this study could drastically improve the safety protocols involved in self-driving automobiles. Why a DeLorean? To paraphrase Doc Brown, “if you’re gonna build an autonomous drifting car, why not do it with some style?”
