TORCS, The Open Racing Car Simulator, is a car racing simulation, which allows you to drive in races against opponents simulated by the computer. You can also develop your own computer-controlled drivers (also called robots) in C or C++. TORCS is widely used in research and education as base for various projects and experiments. A rich toolchain and documentation is available. TORCS is "Open Source" (GNU General Public License Version 2 or later).
