From Gamer to Le Mans Race Car Driver - How technology is Changing the Way We Drive 

For most of us, our experience with race car driving has typically been limited to:

  1. Watching NASCAR on TV.

  1. Getting behind the wheel as Mario.

  1. Cheering on James Hinchcliffe in the IndyCar series. 

However, recent advancements in virtual reality (VR) and gaming technology have enabled motorsports to shift gears to more interactive experiences. Here are some game-changing automotive technology stories we’ve seen this past year:

Experiencing Le Mans with VR: Ford released a VR app that gives users a 360-view of the Le Mans racetrack, the Baja 1000 off-road course and more. All you need is a smartphone or VR headset for a front row seat. This app gives a glimpse into the potential for VR technology to change the way we watch and engage with sports games and other events from the comfort of our homes.

Virtual Racing with Project Cars 2: The video game Project Cars 2, set to be released this September, promises to be a full-featured racing simulation for VR headsets. Your car’s performance will change based on weather, temperature and altitude conditions in the game, offering a hyper-realistic driving experience. It’s clear that VR is upping the ante for gaming and we’ll continue to see more immersive virtual experiences.  

Autonomous Racing: Roborace is poised to become the “world’s first self-driving racing series.”Ten teams will develop two driverless cars to compete against each other during the Formula E season. One of the robocars was on display in New York City’s Times Square last week, showing off a brightly colored prototype. Autonomous driving is not only making strides on the race track, but automakers are racing to bring a fully autonomous driving experience to the mass market.

The automotive industry is rich with innovation, and semiconductor technology is driving the next generation of automotive design. Every connected car feature, from backup cameras to infotainment systems and in-vehicle connectivity, is enabled by semiconductors. At Cypress, we have a wide portfolio of automotive technology for ADAS, infotainment, instrument clusters, and body and comfort electronics to make it easier for automakers to deploy automatic braking and steering systems, elegant touch-based controls, interactive infotainment systems and many more connected car features. 

We can’t wait to see what automotive technology is coming next!
