Test drivers who never get tired and drive equally well throughout their shift...They don’t exist, do they? Continental has developed an autonomous testing vehicle. Watch the prototype in action on the dusty roads of Texas.

Tire testing is a strenuous task under extreme climate and road conditions. At Continental’s testing ground in Uvalde, Texas, each test driver carries out one 8-hour test per day. Driving very slow speeds on a very short circuit, the drivers naturally start not paying attention to the road and lacking the concentration needed at some point. This is why Continental is introducing a driverless testing prototype. We visited the testing grounds in Texas to see the stunning outcome.
