Autonomous Driving: The Future of Hands-Free

Autonomous Driving: The Future of Hands-Free

What is "Autonomous"?

One of the definitions for “autonomous” offered by Merriam-Webster is “having the power or right to govern itself.” Autonomous driving is as easy as that, a car that can govern itself, a car that drives for you. On July 23, 1995, a duo from the Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute embarked on a monumental week-long road trip across America in an autonomous minivan using a system called RALPH (Rapidly Adapting Lateral Position Handler). They drove from Washington, DC to San Diego, CA with the car handling the steering for 2,797 of the 2,849 miles.  Twenty-one years have now passed since this groundbreaking trip and with the anniversary right around the bend, it seems only natural to take a look at the strides that have been taken since and what autonomous driving has become. Everything from autopilot features on the popular Tesla cars to the innovative new Mercedes’ Future Bus, it’s only a matter of time before “Look Ma, no hands!” becomes the social norm.
