By 2020, the priest car will be outfitted with more than 10,000 sensors and more than a thousand computers to help it track people, and even determine whether they are being abused, according to its creators.
The priest car’s creator, Father Joseph Caro, said the technology will be a game changer.
“It is the biggest and most advanced self-driving car we have ever created,” Caro said in a video announcing the Prios car.
The Prios vehicle will be built by Audi AG and will be equipped with an Autopilot system that automatically takes over in case of a crash, which it can do with a button press.
“We think this technology will allow us to make safer decisions, which will be more efficient and more responsible,” Caros statement said.
Prios cars will be capable of driving up to 250km on a single charge, but can go much further than that, according the statement.
“When it’s time to pull over, we don’t have to stop and think if we have to, or we are driving on a road we’ve never seen before,” Carro said.
He also added that the car’s sensors are designed to detect and report on a car’s speed, acceleration, braking and lane position.
In addition, the car will “have a wide range of sensors that can detect objects, pedestrians, obstacles and other people and cars.”
The car will also be able to detect when a car is approaching, so that it can get to the person in the front seat.
“It will be able even if it is in front of you,” Carodos statement added.
Caro’s vision of the Prius car mirrors what Tesla CEO Elon Musk has already announced in the past few months.
Musk has said that he will have a self-drive car by 2021, and that the cars will feature a Tesla logo on the dashboard.
“In a few years, I’m going to have a fully autonomous car on the road,” Musk said in December.
“And the thing that we’re talking about is not cars, but self-driven cars.”
Prios vehicles will be fully autonomous, meaning they will not have to take control of their own vehicles.
This is a big step for Musk, who has long been an advocate for more car autonomy.
“The Prios will be the most capable self-drives on the planet,” Musk wrote in a post on his Tesla blog.
“They will be incredibly fast and they will be very easy to control.
That’s going to be the ultimate driving experience.”
The Prius will also have a range of up to about 300km on charge, which Musk says will be “a significant improvement over a conventional car.”
“I think the Priuses will be much safer than conventional cars in terms of road safety,” Musk tweeted in December, after the Prio cars were unveiled.
Musk also said that the Prioses will have “the fastest and most accurate self-detection and braking technology ever seen.”
Tesla said that Tesla’s self-control technology will not only give the Prii cars autonomy, but also help them avoid other accidents.
“Our goal is to help Prios drivers avoid accidents and fatalities, and to reduce road-related deaths,” the company said in its statement.
The first Prios units will be in service by 2021.
Tesla said it would be taking delivery of around 4,000 Prios over the next six months.
Prio founder Joseph Caros has been building autonomous cars since 2004.
The company unveiled the first Prius prototype in 2014.
The cars can travel up to 200km on electric power alone.
In November 2017, the company unveiled its first production version of its self-powered vehicle, which has a range up to 300km.
