Google, you can drive my car?

"Google has been working in secret but in plain view on vehicles that can drive themselves, using artificial-intelligence software that can sense anything near the car and mimic the decisions made by a human driver." Read John Markoff's New York Times piece, with video and diagrams explaining how the robocars drive themselves. Brad Templeton of the EFF has some related observations.
