Technology: Robot Cars

Every year, car accidents, many due to human error, kill 1.2 million people. According to University of Michagan professor and Google consult Larry Burns, “robot cars could be the cure for one of the world’s biggest causes of deaths.” Burns believes self-driving robot cars could be available as early as 2017, but one of the obstacles in the way of this is allowing the cars to be tested on a larger scale in order to learn more about what the cars need to be able to do. Also, people must be willing to accept a car that drives for them, instead of the other way around.
