Toyota and Audi Have Driverless Cars

While they still require human help, the companies are showing off the tricks computer-run cars can do.


From The Christian Science Monitor

Toyota leaked a video ahead of its Jan. 7 announcement that shows a Lexus LS decked out with driverless technology speeding down a highway.

Audi’s a little tighter-lipped with the details, but The Wall Street Journal reports that it will be bringing a car that can find a parking space on its own, and park itself without help from a driver. Audi’s been working on autonomous vehicle technology for quite a while, as have Ford and Mercedes-Benz.

The cars were shown off at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show. And of course, they still need human help, so they’re not 100 percent driverless. Instead, they make things like parking, staying in lanes, and matching the speed of traffic easier.

But when are they going to fly?
