Self-driving are currently already in use on the roads. While most of them are still on the testing phase in terms of the pilot programs, more and more companies are coming forward in the silently intense competition to roll out the first commercially available autonomous cars. There are a few companies that have already shown that their cars are perfectly capable of being free of a human driver. On the other hand are the high ended modern cars that already come with the ability to show some semblance of being autonomous, while mainly under the control of a driver.
Companies that are Into Autonomous Cars
At the moment, almost all of the technology giants are at different depths in the self-driving car scene. At the top is Google, but only for now. If rumors are to be believed, they are set to receive massive competition from the likes of Apple and the Chinese company Baidu. It has been speculated that both these giants are currently working on ways to bring self-driving technologies forward. And these are only the tech companies; the companies that are already in the automotive industry are blazing forward with significant research and development efforts towards creating commercial autonomous vehicles. Tesla Motors, GM, Daimler, Volvo, Audi, Jaguar, Land Rover, Ford, and BMW are already on the way to develop stable and presentable solutions to make their cars completely independent of human interface.
