GM Driverless Cars, Part II

Well a day was all that was needed to find out what the buzz was about regarding GM’s driverless car announcement. Autobloggreen reports that Larry Burns (GM VP of R&D) says that we could start to see cars park themselves within 5 years.

Makes sense to me. If you have specially outfitted parking lots or garages to accommodate autonomous vehicles (and no people driving around in them) it would make for a very good proving ground to demonstrate their effectiveness and take a first step toward full vehicle autonomy. Plus lots and garages are often private property so there would be fewer hurdles to obtaining approval.
