The Volkwagen Touareg "Stanley" is a four-wheel car fitted with the latest technologies for autonomous navigation.

The brainchild of the Volkswagen Group Research's Electronic Research Laboratory and Stanford University, Stanley will be on display at the Singapore Science Centre until Aug. 12. Singapore is the only stop in Asia as part of its round-the-world tour.

The driverless car is built with a high-performance computer system consisting of seven interconnected Intel Pentium M 1.6GHz processors and Intel motherboards located in the vehicle's luggage compartment. The computer-controlled car uses a renewable energy called SunFuel. Derived from biomass, the almost climate-neutral fuel produces extremely low emissions, up to 90 percent lower than those produced by fossil fuel.
