A little over five years ago at the 2007 DARPA Grand Challenge, competing teams of autonomous vehicles were creeping along at a 14-mph pace as they attempted to finish a 60-mile road course. Fast forward to the present day, and Google’s driverless cars have traveled over 300,000 road miles at traffic speeds without a single accident resulting from its advanced software. The pace at which the technology has reached the threshold of functionality and commercialization is astonishing.
