Have you ever pictured a future with robots to clean our houses and drive us around? Automated or autonomous vehicles are being tested worldwide. These cool cars are capable of processing large amounts of data thanks to machine learning. As they 'learn', we see a reduction in accidents and better traffic flow. Autonomous vehicles would allow passengers to work, read, or rest while the computer does the driving. The machine learning software would access information gathered from sensors, cameras, radar, and GPS.
Of course these driverless vehicles are still in early development, and none have been approved for use on normal roads yet. For now you can explore the vehicle below to see how the different sensors operate and check out the video links to see the testing of an autonomous vehicle.
