Are we there yet? is an in-depth look at the state of affairs in Europe regarding the future of driving. The wheel, crucial to the operation of a moving object, was invented circa 3500 BC. Since then – from oxen, horses, camels to mechanical engines – humans have been in the driver’s seat.
Developments in the field of driver assists and autonomous driving in recent years suggest a revolution is around the corner. Are we there yet? is a three-part story that looks at two very different ideas that contribute to what may be a common purpose.
Note: For all purposes of this work, the words self-driving, driverless, autonomous and robotic cars mean and refer to the same thing.
