http://www.ted.com Sebastian Thrun helped build Google's amazing driverless car, powered by a very personal quest to save lives and reduce traffic accidents. Jawdropping video shows the DARPA Challenge-winning car motoring through busy city traffic with no one behind the wheel, and dramatic test drive footage from TED2011 demonstrates how fast the thing can really go.
Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the
Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads
autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or
further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle
which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric
motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on
the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet
drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When
underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to
light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are
supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

Chris Gerdes: The future race car -- 150mph, and no driver
http://www.ted.com Autonomous cars are coming -- and they're going to drive
better than you. Chris Gerdes reveals how he and his team are developing
robotic race cars that can drive at 150 mph while avoiding every possible
accident. And yet, in studying the brainwaves of professional racing
drivers, Gerdes says he has gained a new appreciation for the instincts of
professional drivers. (Filmed at TEDxStanford.)

For the first time ever a road train comprising a Volvo XC60, a Volvo V60
and a Volvo S60 plus one truck automatically driving in convoy behind a

Driverless Car Hits the Street - Not People
For sportscar enthusiasts, it's a crying shame. The Lotus Elise moves down
the road, navigating the asphalt, taking hairpin turns and obeying all
traffic laws-without a driver.
But to Lotus engineering and the College of Engineering at NC State, it's
anything but a sad sight. This high-tech, high-performance vehicle is an
autonomous vehicle or driving robot.
And for those that may find themselves in harms way or staring down an
explosive device, the driverless roadster is an engineering marvel. Working
in partnership with Lotus engineering, NC State's entry was one of only 30
participants (from an original field of 89) invited to participate in the
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Urban Challenge National
Qualification Event in October.
GM's driverless car
Vehicles that operate without a driver and allow passengers to safely use
their mobile devices are being tested by the U.S. Department of Defense.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has created Boss, a
Chevrolet Tahoe designed to drive itself.
Boss is a robotic vehicle equipped with 25 lasers, cameras and radars to
enable it to sense objects and know which direction to go in.
The self-driving vehicle is scheduled to be tested in November during The
Urban Challenge, a 100km course in which various robots race across a city
or suburban environment.
In addition to helping the military, General Motors officials expect this
new technology to also play a future role in dangerous tasks such as
Google Car is Self-Driving & Has No Steering Wheel (VIDEO)
Google recently showed it's new self driving car prototype to the public.
The car is 100% self-driving. There is no steering wheel, no brake pedal,
no accelerator. If you were riding in the car, you couldn't drive it if you
wanted to. See the car in action in the video.
At some point in 2015 or beyond, Google will begin to sell the cars for use
where the law permits. Four U.S. states allow the testing of self-driving
cars on public roads: California, Nevada, Florida, and Michigan.
