The AP reports vehicles are becoming gradually smarter and building toward autonomous cars in the future. Self-driving vehicles topped the agenda at the Geneva International Motor Show, despite not being showcased. The AP reports “Executives think that cars that drive themselves at least part of the time may be upon us by the end of this decade.” Google is already testing self-driving cars in Mountain View, California, Austin, Texas, and Kirkland, Washington. Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche said his company sees “two roads to full autonomy, one being the more evolutionary one where basically more and more assistance systems kind of automatically lead to a fully autonomous car.” He added, “The other one is more revolutionary … where first in restricted areas you have fully autonomous cars and over time you expand the area where you can do that.” Zetsche continued, “And I would say in restricted areas you can see fully autonomous cars in the latter path around the turn of the decade.”
