Driverless cars

  1. May 30, 2007 #1
    So I was stumbling wiki & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Driverless_car" [Broken] documentary on NOVA I had watched a while ago.

    Wiki apparently thinks a fully autonomous car "looks like a case of an AI-complete problem, meaning that it is so complex that it can only be solved completely by a program that has human-level intelligence". Sounds a bit weird seeing as the 2005 winner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_%28vehicle%29" [Broken]) performed fairly well with a couple measly 1.6 gigahertz computers. How hard could it possibly be & why don't we have driverless cars?
