Audi Unveils Prologue Piloted Driving Concept

by SpeedLux

Audi, a Germany-based car manufacturer with a high reputation, has now officially taken the veil off its latest Prologue piloted driving concept vehicle. The car has been introduced at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) event that is currently welcoming public from all around the world in Vegas. To tell the truth, however, this new vehicle that the German company is showing off is really an update of its original Prologue concept.

Nonetheless, the Audi Prologue piloted driving concept comes equipped with a fully autonomous driving technology. In order to function properly, this technology takes advantage of a number of radar sensors, video cameras, ultrasound sensors, and also a laser scanner, all of which are installed at places where even owners of the vehicle will not be able to see them. All these components work together in order to gather the information required by the fully autonomous driving technology and the information is then passed to a central controller that the company calls the zentrales Fahrerassistenzsteuergerat. The English equivalent is ‘central driver assistance controller’. It is this component that makes it possible for the car to drive itself.

Another known fact is that the Audi Prologue piloted driving concept vehicle will also boast a 4.0L V8 TFSI engine with twin turbochargers, combined with an electric motor, a lithium-ion battery with a total capacity of 2.6 kWh and an 8-speed e-tiptronic gearbox. As a result, the car has a peak power output of 677 PS and a peak torque of 950 Nm.

The car is also capable of accelerating from a standstill to a speed of 100 km/h within 3.5 seconds only. In addition to that, the upcoming Audi Prologue piloted driving concept vehicle will consume only 7.9 liters of fuel for every one hundred kilometers it travels. Lastly, the car emits just 185 g of CO2 per km.
