It’s not a race car, but it will be running around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. A driver-less security robot will add a layer of security as part of a test project starting in the month of May.
Senior Director of Safety and Security, Mike Bates says the INTELLOS Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle has a lot of different features.
"It’s got a comprehensive camera system on it," Btes says. "The unit itself is battery operated. It’s electric."
Bates say spectators may or may not see it roaming around the track.
“During the races when there’s a lot of people out here, we’ll probably have it in a static display. We’ll position it somewhere and not have it rove around,” Bates says.
IMS will be the first sporting venue in the country to have the robot.
