Default ‘Driverless’ car drives cross country in 9 days

Full article at http://www.seattletimes.com/business...try-in-9-days/

The person sitting in the car’s driver seat intervened once when traffic was weaving around in a construction zone, and again when the car didn’t want to move into a busy left lane to avoid police stopped on the right shoulder.

"Auto supplier Delphi fitted an Audi Q5 with radar, cameras and laser sensors to navigate the 15-state journey from San Francisco to New York that started March 22, mostly traveling on highways. The car drove itself 99 percent of the time, Delphi said Thursday.

Along the way, the autonomous Audi never drove above the speed limit, even when everyone else did. As a result, other drivers subjected the car — and its human occupants — to “a few hateful gestures,” said Jeff Owens, Delphi’s chief technology officer."

"The system will appear in Audis in about two years. Delphi is also supplying Volvo with the radar- and camera-based system that enables automatic braking, lane-departure warning and other safety features on the upcoming XC90.

“This technology has come so far. It’s going to make such a difference in the accident statistics,” Owens said."
