Goodwood has announced some of the events and attendees at this year’s Future Lab, held as part of the Festival of Speed to celebrate the latest innovations in the world of mobility.
Designed to “inspire, educate and entertain the whole family”, the Future Lab is one of the most exciting parts of the festival. In recent years there has been a multitude of innovations both within and outside of conventional motoring and the 2019 event promises to build on that.
Guests can see a fully autonomous “twin” of the EXOMars rover that Airbus Defense & Space is building for a mission to Mars next year. Another organization, AstroPlant, is exploring the idea of growing crops in space and is looking for young space farmers to help.
As in years past, there are several outfits vying for position in the flying car market. AeroMobil will host the UK debut of its flying car concept, while Alauda Racing will have flying race cars (also a first).
Back on solid ground, the first long-distance solar car, called the Lightyear One, is unveiled. And the Brighton-made Kar-go driverless delivery vehicle will be unveiled by the Academy of Robotics, which aims to offer an environmentally friendly alternative to the diesel-powered same-day delivery model currently littering Britain’s roads.
