The Benefits of Semi-Automated Vehicles

A couple of startups have emerged to help with that transition by enabling regular cars to become driverless. Otto is an effort forged by a team of ex-Google employees, while Oxbotica is an Oxford University spin-out company.
Of course, this transition has not just interested the commercial world, with a number of academic studies also exploring the matter. For instance, one study has examined the ease with which control of the car can alternate between man and machine.
A second study, by researchers from Carnegie Mellon, explores the potential benefits of such a hybrid approach to automation.
