The Next Audi A8 Will Drive by Itself

Jul 13, 2015 - 7:18 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Audi has been pioneering autonomous technology for years with numerous prototypes and now the German automaker has announced plans to launch its first self-driving car.

In a statement Audi has said it, “will be offering piloted driving for the first time in the upcoming generation of the Audi A8.”

Piloted Driving is Audi-speak for the German automaker’s suite of technologies that will control the vehicle in certain situations.

It’s not clear exactly how far the self-driving technology will have evolved once the next Audi A8 arrives (or even when the new A8 will arrive), but Audi is currently working on two key innovations.

The first is a parking pilot system that rivals BMW and Mercedes are already planing to offer, allowing the driver to park the vehicle from outside it, using either the key fob or a smartphone app. The second, and more exciting technology, has been dubbed “traffic jam pilot.”

Audi Creates Batch of E-Gas Called ‘E-Benzin’

Now, along with partner Global Bioenergies, the first batch of Audi 'e-benzin' has been manufactured, synthetically produced without the use of petroleum. According to Audi, it is 100 percent iso-octane and has an outstanding octane rating of RON 100. In addition, the e-benzin has no sulfur or benzene, allowing it to burn very cleanly.

With its high octane rating, the fuel can be used in high-compression ratio engines for enhanced efficiency and the company will move forward by testing the new fuel in the lab and test engines. The two companies will also find ways to modify the process so that it requires no biomass, instead requiring just water, hydrogen, CO2 and sunlight.
