The EU’s HAVEit (Highly Automated Vehicles for Intelligent Transport) consortium, celebrated the final event of their multi-year research project by displaying driverless cars and trucks.
VW and Volvo demoed driverless cars and trucks and compared their systems to Google’s driverless car (which last fall drove 140,000 driverless miles on California highways).
In support of all these developments, Nevada passed a new law enabling driverless cars in that state.

The only accident was when one Google car was rear-ended while stopped at a traffic light.
The cars used LIDAR, a video camera, four standard automotive radar sensors and a position estimating sensor along with Google AI software.

Detailed stories by the NY Times.
