Former IndyCar racer and quadriplegic Sam Schmidt drove a modified racecar around the track during the 2014 Indianapolis 500 festivities, becoming the first person with quadriplegia to drive a racecar at high speed using integrated advanced electronics.

Arrow Electronics and its partners developed the technology that could change the automotive industry. Engineers modified the car—a 2014 Corvette C7 Stingray—with a human-to-machine interface so that Schmidt can drive it using only his head. It is known as the semi-autonomous motorcar, or SAM.
