BMW Self Driving Car

While the Terrafugia has got its flying car “The Transition” and Ford Motor has got its talking cars, BMW has got its Self Driving Car out already on the German’s federal limit-free expressways (on test mode of course). This newly released video footage from BMW shows a BMW 5 series model driving along Germany’s Autobahn with the driver completely hands off the wheel.

The car apparently is able to not only drive itself but also maneuver along the busy freeway. BMW believes that the system could be available in production cars within 10 to 15 years (but I bet it will be a lot more sooner). Even non-automobile player such as Google are also “getting behind the wheels” to get onto the driverless highway of the future (see article), so it is not a question of whether or not it will happen but when and who will get there first!
