autonomous vehicles

Engineers at automotive companies have been working on autopilot systems for many years. The main goals of autonomous transport are increasing security on the road and offloading city streets by automating car coordination. The trouble with developing autonomous vehicles is directly linked to computer vision algorithms. Today, most systems require even roads and clear markings. If the program works well on highways, city traffic is a different story. Autonomous vehicles are currently being tested by human drivers who can take control in an emergency situation. But even this precaution doesn’t always prevent accidents.
