Driverless Car Summit Starts With Focus on Implementation

AUVSI’s Driverless Car Summit 2013 kicked off with discussion on how to make automated driving a reality.  The summit, held for the second year in a row at the MotorCity hotel in Detroit, has always had the goal of making driverless cars hit the streets by 2022, but with a recent release from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on its commitment to increasing autonomy in vehicles to achieve greater safety, this year’s conference hit a pragmatic tone early in the presentations.
