Jointly developed with Segway Inc., Chevrolet's EN-V (Electric Networked-Vehicle) is a self-driven, electrically propelled concept car designed for urban environments. Chevy said the autonomous two-seat vehicle is designed to address environmental issues, traffic congestion, parking, safety, and energy consumption. It will reportedly be featured in a 2015 Disney film called Tomorrowland. (Source: Chevrolet)
I have read the comments on the original article appearing in Design News. Many of the apprehensions are worth looking at by the designers and if they take all this criticism positively then we will defintely have a viable and road worthy version of autonomous cars on the road in the next couple of years.
Whatever may be the flaws in its autonomous decision making process, I think these autonomous cars will be driven much more safely than those drunk drivers !
So at least when are retruning for a late night party, better hand over control to the auto pilot of your car than take the rosk of hitting somebody or get caught by the traffic cops !
