In this work we propose scaling down the image resolution of an autonomous vehicle and measuring the performance difference using pre-determined metrics. We formulated a testing strategy and provided suitable testing metrics for RC driven autonomous vehicles. Our goal is to measure and prove that scaling down an image will result in faster response time and higher speeds. Our model shows an increase in response rate of the neural models, improving safety and results in the car having higher speeds.
