Unknown  Autonomous car drives itself with no fear of traffic problem or accident even at speed of 150 mph. It’s sure it’s exciting & thrilling!

It’s the latest automobile technology! This is no fiction nor is it a pigment of your imagination. You see robots performing human tasks and what of the American predatory drones flying without pilots . . . seeking & striking terrorists? Remote-control is featuring everywhere. Prayerfully & speaking for my own personal disability of being rendered immobile because of glaucoma, this will definitely be capable of solving traffic problems & creating new exciting frontiers.

Dr. Chris Gerdes, when addressing a TED audience, reveals how he and his team are developing robotic race cars that can drive at 150 mph while avoiding every possible accident. And yet, in studying the brainwaves of professional racing drivers, Gerdes says he has gained a new appreciation for the instincts of professional drivers.

Dr. Chris Gerdes, the Director of the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford (conveniently acronymed CARS), and his team are developing a robotic race car, capable of driving at outrageous speeds while avoiding every possible accident. Gerdes’ research focuses on the development of driver assistance systems for collision avoidance, as well as on new combustion processes for engines.

Prior to teaching at Stanford, Gerdes was the project leader for vehicle dynamics at the Vehicle Systems Technology Center of Daimler-Benz Research and Technology North America. His work at Daimler focused on safety analysis.
