Stanford University's Center for Automotive Research (CARS) has been toiling away on its autonomous race car. Shelley is a computerized Audi TTS that uses GPS receivers to sty the course and algorithms to adjust to surrounding terrain. Capable of speed of up to 130 mph, the vehicle will be tested on a dry lake bed in California and up Colorado's Pikes Peak. Stanford is working with Volkswagen and plan to have one ready for consumers by 2028.
