This self-driving Volkswagen GTI 53+1 isn’t completely autonomous, as you have to first download GPS points and then have that data processed before it can “analyze the course route and devise the fastest line possible.” Hit the jump for a video.

The video says the car was not developed to promote future autonomous VWs (Stanford’s got that covered), but instead as a way to test the company’s hardware without a human driver. Eliminating a driver insures every test will be performed exactly as the one before and give consistent results each time
