Autonomous Car Makes Historic Trip

Autonomous Car Makes Historic Trip

For the first time in history, an autonomous car has completed the cross country journey from San Francisco to New York City. The robotic driving system, designed by automotive parts supplier Delphi and installed in an Audi SQ5, features a front-mounted camera that can survey street signs and traffic lights as well as six radar systems installed throughout the perimeter of the vehicle. Despite encountering a variety of weather and traffic conditions, the remarkable robo-car required human intervention for only 1% of the landmark trip. More on the story at Wired.
