Buenos Aires, AR is preparing
Buenos Aires entered the AV age at high speed. On February 18, 2017, the city hosted the world’s first autonomous auto race, dubbed the Roborace. With two high-performance DevBot driverless vehicles occupying the test track together at the same time, an oversteering error sent one of the racers into a wall in the world’s first driverless wipeout. Beyond the racetrack, Buenos Aires is proceeding with caution, however. For now, the focus is on legalizing ride sharing in the city and creating a solid foundation for the anticipated commercial introduction of AVs in the next four to five years.
