The TTS is named Shelley in honor of Michèle Mouton, an Audi rally driver and the first woman to win at Pikes Peak. Shelley uses differential GPS to track its location to within 2 centimeters, though Gerdes says the margin will be closer to 1 meter on the mountain. Wheel-speed sensors and an accelerometer measure its velocity and a gyroscope controls equilibrium and direction. The algorithms that make it all work run on hardware developed by Sun Microsystems.
“The computational power needed to do this is less than you’d find in your laptop,” Hernandez said

I spend so many days of my life on the road anymore. Cars need to hurry up and have full autopilot.
