The project itself is not new – Its development began back in 2015. A group of scientists bought a car from a person who used it for daily trips. Marty decided to name the project in honor of one of the main characters of “Back to the Future” Marty McFly.
The authors initially wanted to make not just a drone, but a car that could drift without any human involvement. As planned, such a technology can help reduce the number of accidents – in a stressful situation, a car trained in extreme driving techniques will act according to the algorithm and will not make a mistake that a person could potentially make.
