Actor Daniel Brühl is best known for his starring role as Niki Lauda in Ron Howard’s Rush. He has also acted in other acclaimed movies like Inglourious Basterds, The Bourne Ultimatum, and is an Audi brand ambassador.
On that note, he arrived at Germany’s recent Berlinale film festival in an unusual manner. A completely autonomous Audi A8 L W12 picked Brühl and his girlfriend up from their hotel to drive them without the aid of a chauffeur to the film festival.
Audi created a detailed map of the route that the A8 L W12 would take before the event and then the car’s cameras, sensors and radar compared architectural objects with those present on the map.
