The Potential of Self-Driving Vehicles | CMU’s Raj Rajkumar | TEDxPittsburgh

Raj Rajkumar is the director of the General Motors-Carnegie Mellon Autonomous Driving Collaborative Research Lab, and is helping to make driverless vehicles a reality. While the technology is certainly new and cutting edge, Raj illustrates that the conversation started very long ago. This talk includes demonstrations of the car in action, challenges they are working to overcome, including the main obstacle the autonomous vehicle faces: for society to give up control.
