The Arrow Corvette Can Be Driven By People With Limited Limb Use

The Arrow Corvette is a wonderfully well-modified version of the famous Chevrolet Corvette sports car, and is a semi-autonomous car designed specifically to be driven by people who may not enjoy full movement in their legs and arms.

The newest version of the Arrow Corvette demonstrated the ability to clock a highly impressive top speed of 245 km/h whilst being driven by Sam Schmidt, who lost movement in his arms and legs after a motorsport-related accident back in 2000. The vehicle can be controlled by head movements, while braking and acceleration are controlled by a mouthpiece that is sensitive to applied pressure.

This particular achievement goes towards proving this semi-autonomous car's credibility as a desirable and hugely viable alternative for those people who will come to rely on autonomous driving technology in the years to come.
