Autonomous cars have already taken over the world and are on the verge of making their final, decisive manoeuvre to eject humanity out of the driving seat. The machines have achieved their domination by using the humble and unsuspecting traditional car as their primary instrument of deception.
That’s according to David Sloan, Chicago Auto Show general manager, although he may not have put it in those exact words. Speaking to Chicago Sun-Times, Sloan says: “People might be surprised to know that most of the technology that will be used to make car autonomous in the future is already in cars today on our show floor.”
Ground-breaking research will help programme future autonomous cars to have driver-like reactions
Drivers more likely to trust autonomous cars if they don’t drive like robots
The project will help develop future insurance policies for automated vehicles
Jaguar Land Rover is investing in a multi-million-pound research project that will help future autonomous vehicles drive naturally like human drivers, rather than like robots.
A fleet of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles will be driven daily by employees of the London Borough of Greenwich, to establish how a range of different drivers react to real-world driving situations, including heavy traffic, busy junctions, road works and bad weather.
