McLaren Applied Technologies, the sister company of the Formula 1 team, worked extensively with gathering opinions from sport fans and now presents the 2050: the MCLExtreme with a built-in co-pilot for artificial intelligence, an electric battery that can be folded away and self-healing tires.

MAT's work includes more than just the racing car for the drivers in three decades. They have also given their thoughts extensively about developments in human performance of drivers, racetracks of the future and the fan experience that we can expect in 2050.

An extensive analysis of the various elements that the MCLExtreme contains, fans are delighted because it is a 500 km / h electric car with rear-wheel drive that is powered by a & # 39; folding battery molded to the aerodynamic package & # 39; .

This is not a new venture for McLaren who bullied fans with futuristic designs in 2015 when they released graphics and designs for the MP4-X.

The technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, but the idea of ​​flying racing cars was soon surpassed by both fans and engineers.

Efficiency and a need to streamline the design of the car was the basis for the research team when they started their discussions

In the unveiling, McLaren wrote: & # 39; True to the sport's mission to be relevant to the road, we don't expect race cars to fly in 2050. Flying road cars are equal to more air congestion, more noise nuisance and probably more accidents.

& # 39; If you think drone sightings at airports cause large-scale disruptions, well … you know the rest. With the emergence of super-fast underground transport portals, such as Virgin Hyperloop One, it is more likely to build underground networks that move large amounts of traffic in less time.

& # 39; This is in line with the wishes of the fans we have spoken with, who believe that flying racing cars are the antithesis of grand prix racing. & # 39;

Efiiciency is absolutely essential for successful racing teams and the pursuit of faster times rarely compromises efficiency.

But with cars faster, a fascinating feature of the latest design is seeing contractable side pods that change depending on natural conditions.

Designers have examined every element of the car and an important decision was to add sidepods that are contractual such as shark gills & # 39;

& # 39; Inspired by nature, the MCLE has sidepods that expand and contract like the gills of a great white shark, & # 39; McLaren added.

& # 39; They turn it into a 500 km / h bullet on the straights, but extend as the car enters braking zones and corners to provide stability and control. & # 39;

Artificial intelligence is probably one of the greatest advances in sport that continues with on-board assistance, which may make radio communication with engineers superfluous.

The verdict goes further: & # 39; Drivers can be connected to AI via a symbiotic link in the helmet and sensors within the racing gun. The AI ​​learns and predicts the preferences and the state-of-mind of the driver.

& # 39; It provides real-time racing strategy and important information through a holographic head-up display – but more than that – it understands the state of mind and emotional state of the driver, coordinates advice based on the physiological and psychological feedback it receives. & # 39;

How drivers receive instructions from AI is a fascinating discussion in which they can be connected via the helmet

& # 39; In the future we can reach the point where human resourcefulness is replaced by an AI algorithm & # 39 ;, explains Karl Surmacz, head of Modeling and Decision Science at McLaren Applied Technologies.

& # 39; Machine learning would see human preferences and decisions, as well as our domain expertise and instinct, trapped.

& # 39; Take enough examples of our creative processes and results, and this could be codified into an algorithm that would allow AI to make creative decisions consistent with those of a human counterpart. & # 39;

With plans in the UK to have all new cars & # 39; s with & # 39; effective zero emissions & # 39; in the UK, this is also an important part of the latest designs.

Tracks are another area of ​​constant discussion with new countries that pitch all the time to bring F1 to their country.

Transparent roofs and customizable racetracks depending on the circumstances are just two of the suggestions that emerged from McLaren's findings.

Numbers of the future must be able to adapt to changing weather conditions and will also be provided with transparent roofs for fans
