Autonomous Vehicles

Computer-Controlled Vehicles that Operate without Human Intervention (Land, Water, Air)

"I don’t think cars will become autonomous instantly," [Michael] Montemerlo said, pointing to "smart" anti-lock brakes that are already in cars. "You should think of that car as being just a tiny bit autonomous. Cars are going to have more and more of these adaptive systems and one day you’ll wake up, and you’ll have a car that’s able to drive itself."
