The Next Generation Audi A8 with “Piloted Driving” Option

Audi’s first car capable of autonomous operation will be the next-generation Audi A8, which is hoped to be due in late 2017.

Urlich Hackenberg, Audi R&D boss, revealed that the new A8 would feature advanced assisted driving technology, including the ability to travel autonomously and will make extensive use of sensors, giving 360-degree coverage. 

It is rumoured that the A8 would be a ‘technical masterpiece’ and it will make extensive use of ‘cloud computing’ for the ‘piloted driving’ option. It will be in a constant communication with mainframe computers, uploading information about road conditions and downloading previously uploaded data about road and traffic conditions. 

The next-generation Audi A8 will be the first model to get the firm’s all-new look and it will be the first car designed from scratch by new design chief Marc Lichte.
