What a Driverless Car "Sees"

Autonomous or self-driving cars appear in the news frequently. Taxi and Uber drivers worry that autonomous vehicles will permanently take away their livelihoods. People express concern that the auto-piloted cars will not be safe, or people may lose the freedom of the road that so many people value and see as a right. Given the many concerns about the culture changing effects of self-driving cars, the autonomous passenger vehicle has already arrived, and the technology behind these vehicles is remarkable. Artificial intelligence, advanced sensor technology, and robotics combine to drive passengers through complex and changing situations. Whether you look forward to or dread the driverless car, check out this video that shows a driverless car going down the road and see what car is seeing along the way. The footage is spectacular, and the end makes the future of parking very bright.
