Known as DevBot, it has a cabin that can be driven by a human or a computer allowing teams to fully understand how the car thinks and feels on a racetrack alongside the comprehensive real-time data. However, it has the same drivetrain, sensors, computation systems and communication technology as the Robocar.

The Roborace team has been secretly testing the Roborace hardware and software on airfields and racetracks. Most recently the DevBot drove itself around the famous Silverstone International Circuit in England.

The DevBot is being used to perform trials similar to those in the Roborace and will allow teams to experiment before a pre-qualifying process determined by Roborace which begins next month. Later this year, they will begin competing against each other in cities around the world.
