FILE - In this Thursday, July 15, 2010 file photo a technician works in an unmanned electric-powered vehicle as it makes its way in a street in Parma, Italy. A pair of fender-benders, two technology-loving hitchhikers and 22 hours blocked at the Russian border. That's the balance sheet one month into the three-month journey for a team of driverless vehicles on a 13,000-kilometer (8000-mile) road trip from Europe to China. "We were trapped in customs for one long day. We had a small accident, well two small accidents, caused by human error. As far as the technology is concerned, everything has been smooth. We are very happy,'' project leader Alberto Broggi said Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2010. (AP Photo/Antonio Calanni, file)
