Self Driving cars are coming..well actually they are already here, in Arlington Texas at least.
Drive.AI is offering 3 (soon to be 5) autonomous cars that any one can ride in. To use the cars people can download the app and then order one of the cars to take them along 3 preset routes that take in the cities biggest attractions and most popular areas.
The cars will still have a human ‘safety driver’ as well as a chaperone in the passenger seat but the cars will be driving themselves. The cars also have screens on the outside to give people messages like ‘waiting for you to cross’ and to let people know when the car is ‘driverless’
While safety is top of mind for the company it has not been with passengers in previous tests who have been more concerned with things like how to control the music. You wouldn’t want to get into a fight with a robot over the choice of radio station.
