A decade ago, I visited Lockheed Martin's test center in Colorado and it wasn't uncommon to see Humvees driving themselves all around the huge complex of buildings. They functioned autonomously much like Ford's implementation, so I wonder if the car manufacturer was actually the first to use a robotic system to drive a vehicle.

@MVRS We has to check the legal issues now.  What will happen when the test run is successful, better to be proactive.

It is possible that they enlisted Autonomous Solutions or some other outfit.  Their remote control rigging for cars have evolved through the years, so it could be they just got their on their own, too.

It's not really a legal issue when it is on the proving ground test track.  That is not a public road and there are a lot less uncontrolled vehicles/people around.

True Charles.

"self-driving cars will need to be able to cope with human drivers"

I still believe that human are still faster than those kind of instance, So I think that combination of human touch should be there with the technology, rather than 100% self drive vehicle.

You're touching on a really important topic, Pubudu. Automakers know that even if the technology becomes available for everyone to have a self-driving car, they'll face three big hurdles: One is resistance from people who are hesitant to give up control. Another is that self-driving cars will need to be able to cope with human drivers, who are highly unpredictable. The third is legal responsibility: Who will be responsible when accidents inevitably happen? The automaker seems like a good candidate for that.

Charls thanks for sharing the info

What will be the eagle issue?  As I know there should be a human to drive the vehicles according to the law.

That's why Mercedes Benz new S-class which is launched before five months ago should have to have the touch of human to steering wheels in order to move the vehicle. Otherwise there are all the self driving functions like lane keeping  assistance,  keeping a safe distance with the front vehicle and self drive etc...................................

Certainly this is an excellent way for Ford to gain experience and data on how these systems would perform.  Excellent post.

I agree, Debera. Autonomous vehicles would make for a much more productive commute to and from work.

Autonomus vehicles always fascinate me infact me in my university Final Year Project developed an unamnned ground vehicle however it was not moving by robots . Destination location was provided in terms of latitude and longitude and with the help of AT commands and GPS it reached its location sensors were attached which detect the obstacles .

The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
