Progress in Autonomous Vehicles

In IEEE Org:  Work by Google in trying to make autonomous vehicles better than ever.  Gets back to the problem of 'autonomy' and how it can be delivered with increasingly better streams of data combined with intelligence.  Once you have autonomy, how can you then combine it with human directed decisions?

" ... Google has posted an update on its self-driving car program, which IEEE Spectrum has been watching closely for the past several years. The cars have surpassed 700,000 autonomous miles (around 1.1 million kilometers), and they're learning how to safely navigate through the complex urban jungle of city streets. Soon enough, they'll be better at it than we are. Much better. Read more in our new Cars That Think blog about the sensors, software, and systems behind self-driving cars. .. "
