Self-driving Cars Are Right Around the Corner; Then What?

It is easy to envision autonomous cars as simply allowing drivers to safely multitask while “driving” — that they will be otherwise quite similar to today’s cars on today’s roads. However, much bigger changes are ahead, and it won’t be long before we no longer remember what life was like when cars had steering wheels.

To Make Intersections Smarter, We Need Cars To Be Smarter, Too

Kurt Dresne, one of Professor Peter Stone's former UT Computer Science graduate student spoke with NPR's Robert Siegel recently about his thesis research on autonomous intersection management in a segment called "To Make Intersections Smarter, We Need Cars To Be Smarter, Too."

Disruptions: How Driverless Cars Could Reshape Cities

While driverless cars might still seem like science fiction outside the Valley, the people working and thinking about these technologies are starting to ask what these autos could mean for the city of the future. The short answer is “a lot.”

5 Ways Self-Driving Cars Will Make You Love Commuting

Ordinary Americans can't buy intelligent, self-driving cars just yet, but the technology could someday revolutionize one of the nation's most common road rituals—the morning and evening commutes that bookend the workday for millions of people.

No lights, no signs, no accidents - future intersections for driverless cars

Computer scientists at the University of Texas in Austin are developing intersections of the future, designed to accommodate the driverless vehicles they believe will soon take over our roads. The intersection will have no traffic lights and no stop signs, just computer programs that will talk directly to each car on the road.

UT professor leads research into autonomous intersection technology

Having already designed an SUV that drives itself, a project group at the University of Texas is now working on the technological next step: an autonomous intersection that lets driverless vehicles navigate without stoplights or stop signs.
