A decade of massive labour in an autonomous vehicle has produced an impressive development so far. But the arrival of an actual self-driving automobile that can move anywhere without any human assistance remains a mystery.
Having said that, a lot of companies including Google, Uber, Apple, Tesla and other outfits are investing millions of dollars in R&D to hit the road first. In some cities, self-driving shuttles are in operation, but the routes are extremely limited, typically to a mile or two. The self-driving vehicle uses an arsenal of technologies to automate the process of driving from start to finish.
