No driver necessary
self-driving vehicle project sponsors aim to make road accidents anachronistic -- after they convince consumers the technology is safe
The arrival of self-driving vehicles may be just around the corner. Projects sponsored by top automakers Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Nissan, as well as tech giants Google and Uber, have been partnering with research institutions such as Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute and NASA to develop self-driving car prototypes. If successful, these initiatives could revolutionize the transportation industry.
