Arrow Electronics modifies semi-autonomous car for Sonoma Grand Prix

Former Indycar driver and current Verizon Indycar series team owner Sam Schmidt will drive a modified sports car on the Sonoma Grand Prix road course today (Sunday 30 August 2015) in a high-speed demonstration of integrated semi-autonomous technology developed by Arrow Electronics and its partners.

Schmidt has been paralysed and unable to use his arms and legs since a racing accident in 2000. Driving a 2014 Corvette Stingray equipped with advanced electronics for Arrow’s semi-autonomous motorcar (Sam) project, Schmidt is able to steer, accelerate and brake using only his head.
