Simulating high-speed IndyCars in AR

 Every year, motorsports enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the Indianapolis 500, dubbed “the greatest spectacle in racing.” As 33 of the world’s greatest drivers prepare for the epic 500-mile race this Memorial Day weekend, let’s go behind the curtain to learn how Unity, Autodesk, and a team of creators developed a unique IndyCar AR experience.
