Third time is, finally, a charm.
FloridaGovernor Rick Scott was recently invited by Audi for a quick demo of the semi-autonomousA7. Closing down a stretch of highway outside of Tampa, the governor, asupporter of autonomous vehicle legislation, was invited to get behind thewheel and examine the system up close and with(out) his own hands. Unfortunately for Audi, one of the car'ssensors suffered a miscommunication with the main computer, causing the systemto shut down. The same thing happened when Scott had his second go.
Luckily for Audi, the third time was a charm, allowing the company torelease this short video featuring its brief moment of success.
