If you’ve seen the movies Minority Report or the Total Recall remake you may recall a certain tecnology that was featured in both, driverless cars. Turns out that technology isn’t as futuristic as it sounds. The UK’s Department of Transport has announced that they will allow driverless cars to be tested on their roads by the end of the year! Oxford’s “RobotCar” operates via a trunk-based computer that communicates with the driver via an iPad. The system memorizes routes using small cameras and lasers, and can map in 3D as well as respond to the presence of pedestrians and cyclists by altering its speed. In the US Nevada became the first state to allow driverless vehicles to be tested on its roads, with California and Florida following suit. Are we ready to put our lives into computers hands? Considering the way humans drive these days, with all the distractions of gadgets, phone calls, and texting, not to mention drunk driving, I think computers will probably do a much better job!
