Automated driving was conceived decades ago, starting before World War II. In this segment, Dr. Alain Kornhauser looks back at some of the concepts from those years about what the future would bring. The concepts of automated driving started to materialize in the DARPA Grand Challenges, where Kornhauser led a Princeton team.
Aside from the technology evolution, Kornhauser suggests the big difference in earlier thoughts regarding automation is that instead of “creating” systems, autonomous vehicles will have enough intelligence to co-exist with existing infrastructure and human-powered vehicles.
