Robotic car offers hands-free driving

New technology installed on a “Wildcat” car by Oxford University researchers could improve navigation, reduce emissions, adjust to local traffic conditions, track risks, and provide a hands-free driving experience.

The prototype vehicle uses data from cameras, radars and laser sensors mounted on the car to adjust to its surroundings.

“Our long-term aim is to enable a new generation of robotic vehicles that can make the roads safer, less congested, cleaner, and personal transport more accessible. We do this by making smarter cars” Professor Paul Newman of Oxford University’s Department of Engineering Science, told Oxford University media news.
