Driverless cars – how hard is it?

Some would claim, not all that hard, depending on what you mean by ‘driver-less’.

I am visiting Bangalore right now and people here are quite amused by this: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/street-experiences/137424-driverless-esteem-spotted-bangalore-edit-hoax-see-video-page-4-a.html.

Even if it really is ‘drive by wire’ rather than fully autonomous, depending on how much the ‘minor’ joystick control amounts to, it is quite impressive that they can perform a semi-supervised execution of an off-line-map-informed and GPS-enabled plan on the crowded Indian street!
