Adelaide primed for driverless car research by Carnegie Mellon University

Carnegie Mellon University has put a five­-year, $25 million plan to develop driverless car technology to the South Australian government, capitalising on 30 years of industry research and development at its Pittsburgh headquarters. The university’s Australian campus executive dean Emil Bolongaita said the project would include establishing an engineering department in Adelaide by the middle of next year, partnering with the University of Adelaide, information technology companies and Holden, and students undertaking research degrees in both countries.
