Driverless car finishes 3,400 mile cross-country trip

The trek started at the Golden Gate Bridge and ended in midtown Manhattan on Thursday. It was organized by auto parts maker Delphi to test its automated driving technology. To comply with state laws, one person sat in the driver’s seat throughout the trip, ready to take over if necessary to avoid another car or a pedestrian. Other engineers on the team monitored data collection during the trip.
Delphi said that 99% of the trip was done with the car in automated mode.
